Daily Beast College Ranking

Disclaimer: This post is taken from The daily Beast. For original Link click here. The Blogger copy pasted it to keep a document of the post, for future help or reference. (Top 50+My own university is kept on the list)


Our list takes into account nine factors, with future earnings, affordability, and academics weighted most heavily. The other criteria are graduation rates, diversity, athletics, nightlife, student activities, and campus quality (things like food, weather, and crime rate). This year, we used data from The National Center for Education Statistics, as well as private organizations like PayScale, for salary data, and Niche, for student opinions. Below, the top 250 and a sampling of how each fared within the given criteria. Click here for our full methodology.
