    That shows how rankings can really lead to mistakes, and why I'm warning about the use of "top something" to select schools.

    But then, we are PhD applicants/students/candidates. So, I guess we love to discuss problems with methodology

    I tried the UTD ranking again. I used the period between 2014 and 2017, which is the standard way it shows here to me in the site's search by journals (I think it's too short a period, but I'm doing according to their configuration). For journals related to my concentration, which is Marketing (Journal of Consumer Research, Journal of Marketing, Journal of Marketing Research, and Marketing Science), and worldwide ranking. Berkeley is showing as 71th.

    Thanks BrazilianPhD! The model needs major revision to be publishable
