"Party School" Rankings

Yesterday, I blogged the new U.S. News Law School Rankings (here, here, and here).  Inside Higher Ed has a piece on Competing Party School Rankings by Playboy and Princeton Review.  Here is how Inside Higher Ed describes the methodologies of the two rankings:

The differing methodologies of the two operations result in different "winners" of the competition that most administrators would prefer to lose. Playboy does include learning as one factor in its rankings. The other four factors are: athletics, campus life, availability of sex, and a "bikini index," based on weather, female-to-male student ratio, and cheerleaders. ...  The Princeton Review bases its selections on student surveys covering the use of alcohol and drugs, hours of study a day and the popularity of the Greek system.  [Schools appearing in both rankings are highlighted in yellow.]
