For a university of their stature, they are barely doing any research in the field. The deans and chairs get the survey, see CalTech, and say "Oh yeah CalTech must be good in condensed matter, because they're CalTech, they're good at everything." Then I see Arizona isn't even ranked in AMO anymore, but CalTech is. Seriously? CalTech has THREE AMO professors, while Arizona has an entire college of optical sciences. Word to the wise, if you put any stock in these ratings then you are a total dumbass. Get out there and really research the schools, and pick them based on advisers, not on some arbitrary rankings by a publication that doesn't know *** about physics.
