peepee on forbesThis past week, those grandiloquent oafs at Forbes decided to drop our Best Colleges in America ranking from No. 65 to No. 70.

While we’re dropped down five spots, however, they continue to raise the rankings of other Bay Area universities — including our cross-bay rivals (they-who-must-not-be-named) and Santa Clara University (pfft!), which jumped nearly 60 spots to pass Cal at No. 67.

Really? You’re kidding, right?

Forbes rankings are prepared by the Center for College Affordability and Productivity, a D.C. think-tank that focuses on five areas to arrive to its conclusions: Post-graduate success, student satisfactions, debt loads and default rates, four-year graduation rates and competitive awards.

Seriously, who graduates in four years anymore?
