U.S. News and World Report has published their annual list of best national colleges. There is a methodology involved which uses several factors to develop its rankings. The article makes the point that there will be personal factors involved when attending a college that were not considered when constructing this list. Some of this personal factors that are not considered in the ranking are the proximity of a college/university to a person, sports and/or activities a potential student there may be interested in, etc. Most of the data comes from the Universities themselves, but it is believed to be credible. Almost 1,800 colleges were considered, but although data was gathered on all of these colleges- many didn’t rank on the ultimate list. Some colleges chose not to submit their information, so U.S. News made a note of this in their ranking. To get to the actual rankings, here are some of the numbers. The top rated University on the list is Princeton University. There are currently 5,336 students enrolled here and tuition is just lightly about $40,000. Harvard University in Cambridge, MA is second, and Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut is third. Tuition for Harvard is just over $42,000 and Yale is right at $44,000.
