In this year's primary care rankings, the University of North Carolina—Chapel Hill traded places with the University of Washington to claim the top spot. Little changed among the top 10 schools for primary care, but the Baylor College of Medicine and Mayo Medical School each made significant gains, joining the top 25 by improving their ranks from 49th to a tie at 24th and from 31st to a tie at 19th, respectively.
Engineering: MIT, Stanford, and UC—Berkeley maintained their top three spots in the engineering schools rankings. The California Institute of Technology climbed one position to claim fourth place, and Carnegie Mellon University jumped two spots to a tie for fifth with Georgia Institute of Technology and University of Illinois—Urbana-Champaign. There were no significant changes within the top 50 engineering schools.
Education: Vanderbilt University's Peabody College of Education and Human Development continued its reign as the top-ranked program in this year's Best Education Schools rankings. But there is a new No. 2: Johns Hopkins University continued its upward momentum—the school leapt from a tie for 18th to a tie for 6th last year—to take second place. The move bumped Harvard and the University of Texas—Austin each down one position, to No. 3 and No. 4, respectively, and pushed the Teachers College at Columbia University to just outside the top 5.
