I'm considering applying to grad school, and wouldn't you know it, US News doesn't have a list specifically devoted to the top 100 linguistics programs. I know that the most famous universities always have reasonably good programs no matter what the subject, but I also know I might be missing some not-as-obvious schools that happen to have stellar linguistics programs. I know Georgetown, and Stanford seems good, but Harvard seems really limited in its offerings ... Any suggestions? I'm pretty much only looking to apply in the US, though if you've got a good suggestion in another country maybe I should broaden my horizons.
I'm specifically interested in sociolinguistics, and applied linguistics with an emphasis on bilingualism, educating bilingual children, ESL, etc. (in particular, Spanish and English as the focus languages).
