Ok, let me try to be more specific so I don't keep sending you running in confused circles :).
Re: [umass76] Re:
The rankings you have up on your personal blog are these, correct?: http://sethabramson.blogspot.com/2011/02/2012-mfa-rankings-fiction.html
So, looking at these, since you can comment on them, I was wondering if those are final rankings for 2012 or just draft rankings, since data like selectivity, job placement, funding, all of the other columns that are on the 2011 chart that can be found on pw.org, is absent.
And regarding methodology, these rankings were determined using the "old"/current methodology, and you mean that the new methodology you have developed will be used for the 2013 rankings, is that correct? Or you mean to modify these rankings linked above once your research is complete?
Ok thanks! Hopefully I made more sense this time.
Hi Azer, I can't comment on most of that except to clarify that the new methodology I was referring to above applies to polling I'm doing, under my own auspices (i.e. via/for TSE), right now -- the results of which wouldn't appear on TSE until 2012. I can't comment on specific programs or on the publication of any rankings besides those I put up on my personal blog. The 2012 rankings on TSE now represent the polling I conducted through the end of this past application cycle (i.e., through April 15, 2011).
