Well, I am happy that UIUC went up a spot, but curious about why Cornell dropped.

Only big change is Princeton up 3 spots and Chicago falling out of the top 10 (not a surprise).

Say more, best of men. I often hear this about Chicago but have never heard exactly why this is the case.

Chicago has lost several good faculty in the past 4-5 years and their more recent hires haven't been that great (outside of stealing Wilkinson from Duke). They're also rumored to possibly be losing some of their heavy hitters this year. A few of their big names are also no longer publishing or doing much research.

I'm speaking only of IR and CP. I don't know anything about American or Theory.

Theory is not really a unified field like the others, making rankings somewhat (though perhaps not entirely) pointless. Main thing to know is not to go anywhere outside the "top-ten" or so if you want to end up with a job.

Its possible, but who would you rank above them right now. In terms of who would provide the best education in theory, it seems like it would be a wash among most of the top ten programs. So then we are dealing with who has the most cache in terms of placements, and on that count, it does seem hard to put Chicago in the same league as Princeton or Harvard. They probably belong more in the Yale/Berkeley range.
