Santa Clara #2. Must be the folded sweaters around the collars and the new beemers in the student parking lot.

The reason that SCU is rated higher in the USN&WR rankings is because of the size of their endowment. They're sitting on a bigger pile of money than we are. Endowment is a major component in the USN&WR ranking formula.

Santa Clara has been #2 for at least 15 years. Since I went to Santa Clara and grew up in the Gonzaga culture I have to laugh about anyone from Gonzaga calling SCU the snob crowd. It's true. SCU students drive much nicer cars.

That's weird. I understand why it's important for the overall health of the University, but I'm not sure how it makes for a better overall school for the student.
