For those who like to rank, rate, and evaluate, US News & World Report will feed your desires. One good thing about these rankings is that it also includes, for the top 54, a “grade” from 1 to 5 where 1 is “marginal” and 5 is “outstanding.”
A summary of the method used:
Each year, U.S. News ranks professional-school programs in business, education, engineering, law, and medicine. These rankings are based on two types of data: expert opinions about program quality and statistical indicators that measure the quality of a school’s faculty, research, and students. These data come from surveys of more than 1,200 programs and some 11,000 academics and professionals that were conducted in fall 2008.

As always, go beneath (above?) the rankings.
