1-14 Upper Echelon 1-50 Tier 1 51-100 Tier 2
The ranking changed the tier criteria recently, but this is what everyone still goes off on.
Is there a link for that, or is that just the word on the street?
It's a rough guide of how to look at schools. Obviously FSU dropping from 50 to 51 is no big deal despite it not being ranked in the traditional tier 1 now. The reality is anything outside the T-14, with the exception of a few, are regional. Very, very regional. SouthFlaNole is blowing it out of proportion. However, if the trend continues and we fall into the 60-70's over the course of a few years then yes, we should be worried.
