With 241 votes cast, the top ten are as follows (an * indicates a vote tally very close to the school ranked ahead of it):
1. Harvard University
*2. Yale University
3. New York University
4. University of Chicago
*5. Columbia University
*6. Stanford University
*7. Georgetown University
8. University of California, Berkeley
*9. University of Texas, Austin
10. University of Michigan, Ann Arbor
Northwestern University and University of Virginia were runners-up for the top ten.
Detailed results are here. Considering the fact that there was no way to control for who was voting, or whether they were voting responsibly, the results are remarkably sensible, and I'd be surprised if the specialist poll moves any of these schools more than 3-4 places in either direction.
