After watching mit.edu sink from 2nd to 5th in the
rankings over the past few weeks, I decided to
go ahead and figure out the number of keys per
day per enrolled student for each of the top
five domains :)

The ranking that way is:

2883*2^20 gatech.edu
1712*2^20 cm.edu
1644*2^20 mit.edu
708*2^20 psu.edu
676*2^20 uiuc.edu

Ah, the joys of point- and meaning- less calculations :)

Let's just not do this as keys/day/dollar of tuition!
