Now that the (silly) US News school survey is out, there is some attention to school rankings. The doctoral program survey results for communication is an interesting read. SUNY Buffalo isn’t ranked–we don’t actively recommend the students take the survey, and I think I see why. Those schools that I would expect to have a good reputation, based on the quality of the faculty, are in the third and fourth quartiles, with my own program at the very bottom of the list. No program received better than a B (in any discipline, it looks like).
