3.  Harvard University (318) (#2 overall)

4.  New York University (281) (#4 overall)

5.  Columbia University (242) (#5 overall)

6.  Duke University (231) (#8 overall)

     Stanford University (230) (#6 overall)

8.  Cornell University (220) (#13 overall)

9.  University of California, Berkeley (193) (#7 overall)
