U.S. News & World Report College Rankings are Now Available

August 17, 2007  |  Data Sources

The well-known college rankings are now available for your viewing pleasure. Whether the ranking system is legit or not, I'll let you be the judge, but I think everyone should take note that UC Berkeley was again the number one ranked public national university and UCLA was ranked number three. Go Calee-forn-ee-ah! In a nutshell, here's what U.S. News ranks the universities:

  • Peer Assessment - 25%
  • Retention - 20% in national universities and liberal arts colleges and 25% in master's and baccalaureate colleges
  • Faculty Resources - 20%
  • Student Selectivity - 15%
  • Financial Resources - 10%
  • Graduate Rate Performance - 5%; only in national universities and liberal arts colleges
  • Alumni giving rate 5%

I wonder how much bias is in peer assessment.
