One school doesn't play to the standards of the USNWR ranking, while the other has desperately modified it's admissions standards and practices (that highly favor private schools) to move the needle in their favor. Not knocking the practice, but isn't clear who is who?

There were 2391 freshman in the 2011 entering class of UCLA who scores above 700 in the math portion of the SAT compared to 1768 at USC and 1278 at Harvard. And USC and U Harvard ranks above UCLA ? Only in the imagination of US News & World Report. 9.8k foreign applicants to UCLA Freshman class last year vs. 6.4I at USC.
