I'm curious if anyone has any views on the Planetizen survey rankings. Is it well regarded?
I'm actually pretty surprised by the ordering (if not by most of the actual schools). I mean I'm happy to see MIT ranked number one, but I didn't even know USC had a program, and where are Columbia, Harvard GSD, Michigan?
