    I guess I'm a little surprised to see UConn sitting up there at #2 but it is generally a very good school. I wish they had more DL offerings.

    I'm guessing that their MBA programs are not ranked on the list if they don't appear.

    No, it is something else, like if you click Best Online Graduate Business Programs (Excluding MBA ) that shall include walden, capella , SNHU etc but it doesn't return any result but likewise if you search capitol, you will get capitol college with RNP (Rank not published) status. Trying to figure out why these universities aren't there if similar universities (with same programs) like Bellevue (similar to SNHU) or CTU (similar to walden) are there.

    Maybe because "similar" does not equal "just as good?"

    Kizmet - Universities that are ranked and those which are not ranked shall define good/bad criteria.
    So that was a sort of shock for me at least to see ctu was there and walden/capella etc were not there but that shall be a separate debate (regarding quality).

    For now I'm trying to find out about the criteria about universities that are in usnews database with RNP/not ranked status versus those which return empty string if you try to search by name. So some universities at least exist, whereas some doesn't even exist and unfortunately i have these non existent universities in my future plans :)
