There are several categories that are weighted. You will notice that The Naval Academy has a strong academic rating vs ours but our research ranking is almost twice that of Navy.

Memphis is rising in ranking and reputation and respect in almost all areas. We won't ever be at the very top and even the top 100 is a longshot in the short-term because that has not been our mission. The higher you move the harder it is to move up because you rarely see rankings drop across the board in all areas. To get to the top 100 you need some people to lose ground not just us improving by that much.

No

Apparently Cal was right.

You honestly believe Memphis is academically better than the United States Naval Academy and Tulsa.

Did I read that correctly?

Good grief.

He probably never encountered such a self-loathing closet case like Sherekhuck though.

No, you're not an assh*le.

You're a certifiable piece of sh*t who hates their own program and school.

Go play in traffic.

RE: Top 5% world ranking
Why does anyone have to say anything in their "defense"?

Example #74,835 why so many people don't post here anymore.

Thanks to you and a couple of others (the Canadian, the chick, etc.), it's impossible to have an adult conversation and disagree with a modicum of decency.

Oh, and btw...the UofM is not exactly an academic powerhouse. I love the city and the school, but can be honest about it.

What's your argument on those two. Screaming a name doesn't add to the conversation. Calling yourself names may be like feeding live Tigers raw meat while standing inside the fence. You will pay a price.

The operative word I used was rising. Which is true. Significantly so over the last 10 years. In all areas. And to be honest there are few academic powerhouses. Then you have a line that keeps changing the order of ranking as fortunes improve or not.

Can't you people just accept that some things can be taken at face value. It is positive press period.

True. People that tie their self esteem to university rankings from some odd group in the UAE need help.
