I'm not going to pertend to have researched every program or know that much about all of them, but here is what immediately comes to mind for me:
Re: [franz] What are your rankings?
Top Tier: Iowa, JHU, Columbia, NYU, UCI, Umass Amherest, Michigan, Houston, UVA and Cornell
Second Tier: Brown, Syracuse, Indiana, Arizona, Indiana and Washington. Maybe Montana, George Mason and SLC too.
franz: You seem to be quite into small classes. Why do you think those are so superior?
I haven't been able to decide what I"d prefer. On one hand, you probably get closer to your teachers and that is a good thing. OTOH, being with the same 4 other students could be negative in a couple ways. You'd have a better chance of finding likeminded students and finding writer friends you like more at a big program.
Obvious you get to choose your priorities, I'm not disagreeing with your list, just wondering why you are so into small programs?
