As far as I know, this is the only current ranking of architecture programs in the US. A few months ago I was able to purchase the digital version for $10 or so (not the whole almanac, just the part that deals with schools). I don't know if this is still availiable ('design intelligence' is the name of the group that established this). The overall rankings combine all programs (Masters and Bachelors) and result from a poll of a number of architecture firms. Therefore the outcome is heavily weighted by the practitioner point of view and doesn't necessarily reflect topics such as theory, history, nor probably sustainability. My BARCH program wasn't ranked at all, but I have had no problems getting jobs in the last 8 years around the country (nor getting into Yale this year). Additionally the schools seem to shift dramatically in rank every year, so I don't recommend this as the only resource -though, again, I don't know of any other recent lists - US News did one in 1998 or so(for Grad programs) and it seems like a pretty good source (sorry, I dont have a link but try google)and I've read about the Gourman report but I don't know what it says or how recently the study was done.

Best of luck
