New Ranking Of Colleges

, Malcolm A. Kline, Leave a comment

An outfit called College Consensus offers a new ranking of colleges and came up with what CC’s researchers thought were underrated ones.

CC looked at three things: “Unique Curricular Designs, Model or Influential Programs, and Community Engagement and Service.” Unfortunately, you might notice that life after graduation, or jobs, is not one of their ratings criteria.

Anyway, here’s their best of list:
