From the April issue of Southern Economic Journal:
According to this study, GMU Econ now ranks 41 OVERALL among programs in the U.S.
GMU is just behind #40 UNC-Chapel Hill, and above highly regarded programs such as Univ. of Washington (45), Texas A&M (49), Florida State (52), GW (54), U. Pittsburgh (59), Washington University (69), Emory (71), UC-Irvine (72) and VA Tech (75), and West Virginia (104).

GMU, of course, stands for George Mason University, my Alma Mater.
