US News college rankings are now online. The “top ten” are:

To US News’ credit,
it has broking down the rankings into numerous sub-rankings. The
sub-rankings in my opinion are more valuable than the overall because
you can slice and dice the data in ways that are more useful to you.
Furthermore, US News provides a lot of information about its methodology and using the rankings intelligently.
The “rankings” are really misnamed; they are surveys and data banks. To
use this information beneficially, you need to know what it measures.
