A college or university is a complex entity, with numerous factors to consider, and distilling these down to the place where meaningful comparisons can be made to form a defensible ranking list becomes part science and part art.
To meet this challenge—and thereby provide you with the most useful and insightful educational rankings on the Internet—The Best formulates our rankings based on five informational categories (six, when considering online schools).
The major metrics and qualities for which we rank are these (with expanded, detailed considerations and weights listed): 1.
Academic excellence based on a school’s curriculum generally or within the selected discipline [weight = 25%] Because students tend to review a variety of information when choosing a school, the weight a student gives any one criterion will vary.
For instance, it’s not enough to offer a carefully constructed ranking of great schools if many are too expensive or too difficult to get into.
To better serve the needs of prospective students, we are therefore increasingly offering filters that help you better use our rankings to find the schools that match your specific needs.
