Re: US News World Report Rankings for 2022-23
The ranking methodology is exactly the same for both categories (see ranking methodology link in the article). The only difference is what institutions we’re being compared to.
For the first time, LBSU was placed in the national university rather than the less prestigous regional university category and boy did that do us good! We're ranked at #64 of all national public universities beating out our better known CSU sibling in San Diego (SDSU) who came in at #72. Most of the SEC schools are below us, which most of us have known to be football programs with a university on the side. I'll give Ole Janey credit for this. I don't know if she cooked the books to earn this high rating but keep doing what you're doing on the academic side.
