In the essay "The Order of Things: What College Rankings Really Tell Us," Malcolm Gladwell, who was just featured on 60 Minutes on Sunday evening, critiques how US News & World Report ranks colleges. In the very last sentence of this essay, he concludes, "Who comes out on top, in any ranking system, is really about who is doing the ranking."
Write a minimum of 75 words on exactly how Gladwell tries to persuade his audience to agree with him. Don't worry at this point about all the literary terminology, but rather begin to notice what is the most compelling evidence to support his case. How does he present it? How do all the parts of the essay work together? Notice that I'm not asking you for your opinion. (That would be easy.) I'm asking you to comment upon his argument and his style. Dig into one specific example, and/or respond to what others have written to make this more of an interactive comments forum.
