Berkeley tied with ‘Furd for first place in chemistry and computer science, second place in math, and third place for economics. Our school ain’t looking too shabby in biological sciences (second), physics (third) or earth sciences either (fourth). To round it all out, Berkeley’s English department placed first, and our sociology and history departments ranked second in the nation. What can we say? Same old, same old.
