What a relief. I mean, really, I don’t have to stop and think about these rankings. They’re just a list of schools that are ranked by their composite scores. Yes, there is a little bit of “nudge” here and there for things like SAT scores and GPAs, but overall the rankings are pretty much straight-up.
The point here is that in a world of online popularity contests and rankings (with scores and ratings for everything), online popularity rankings are as straightforward as you can get.
Well, not quite. Because there is one major caveat to the beauty of online popularity contests as the rankings themselves. They’re not all equal in the world anymore. The problem is that some people, especially a tiny minority of people, use their popularity to manipulate the rankings in a way that makes it harder for others to find the schools they want to attend.
This is exactly what happened to me. I was a student at an elite public university in the U.S.A., so people in my area knew that I was a nerd and loved my video game and anime and all the geeky stuff that I was into. It was the Internet that made me unpopular with my peers. When I wasn’t on vacation in Los Angeles, I was on the internet.
Thats why it’s important to understand what your audience is looking for in a school. At the end of the day, if your audience only wants to know how much they might earn, thats your problem, not the schools’ problem. If they want to know about your grades, that’s your problem. If they want to know what classes you take, then you are in the wrong business.
We live in a world where people with an idea are free to say, “I want this,” “I want this,” “I want that,” and “I hate that.” This is because ideas are good, and not because they are the most important thing. When I was in college it took a lot of the fun out of the process. Now I see that in the real world, the idea is almost secondary.
The problem is that these things are too important to us to just throw out there. So you have students who are not only not getting an A, they are getting a C+ or D-. The problems with an actual A+ students are that they are not getting an F and they are not getting a D, and the problems with a D+ students are they are getting a C+ and a D-.
What happens to the rankings when people get a C? Are they still the most important thing in the world? Or are they just less important than the fact that a student is getting an F? The answer is that the rankings are still important, but the relative importance of each ranking is less important. That’s because when rankings are important, they become more important the more they are ignored.
The problem is that the ranking is often not important, because many different factors affect the rankings. For example, the best universities in the country are not the best universities in the country. The best universities in the country are what we call “elite” universities. Elites are universities that are the most prestigious universities in the country. Because of that, the rankings of these universities are important. The problem is that the rankings are not important enough to be ignored.
Most colleges and universities don’t actually care about the rankings, and in fact, usually rank them very low. For example, the University of Chicago is ranked number one in the nation, but it just happens to be the second best university in the country. The problem is that it doesn’t matter because the ranking is not important. What’s important is that everyone in the world has access to a good university.
