While we are patting ourselves on the back?

Yes, college ranking are not everything and vary a lot depending on your criteria ... but .... did you see the Forbes 2009 list?

West Point:
---- #1 (yes, of all colleges)
Unites States Air Force Academy:
---- #7
United States Naval Academy:
---- #30

From the 2008 rankings:
  • West Point rose from #6 to #1.
  • USAFA #16 to #7.
  • USNA #36 to #30.
The trend is there.

Do we have our priorities right? If not, why? What is causing such a difference between these three schools with roughly the same mission, size, and student pool?

You can review the methodology here.
