Re: [franz] What are your rankings?

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:

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?
