Just rankings for Physics are..
I don't know why two different rankings have contradiction.
It makes me confused with selecting one school of them.
Are there someguys who can tell me which school is better in view of CME and totally?
I would imagine that at the level of Davis/Purdue, the choice will come down to a few faculty of interest, and their personal interest in taking you on. Also, as others have said, the culture of the two places are very different, and might play a significant role in your eventual choice.
Rankings are relatively meaningless.
Browse the faculty pages of both schools and see which looks more interesting to you.
Remember, it's going to be ~6 of your life. You should probably make sure you'll enjoy it. High ranking from USNews or NRC or whatever means nothing if you hate your life for 6 years. Another thing to consider is would you rather live in Davis or Lafayette?
Also weigh in how much they are paying you and the costs of living of those places.
