This method weighs all 629 factors evenly. It is designed to give all colleges and universities the opportunity to be top ranked.

Note: Critics have made the outrageous claim that this ranking consists merely of a random number generator and have transmitted an ugly rumor that the initials "JGGTC" in our algorithm stand for "Jerry Garcia Goes to College." These unfounded claims are libelous and our battery of lawyers stands ready to attack anyone who makes such statements in the future.
