U.S. News World Report Best College Ranking: Top 20 in 2021

The 2021 U.S. New World Report Best College Ranking is out!  I often hear that it doesn’t matter where a student attends college as long as it’s a “good fit”.  Really!!!  Why are rankings used?  Why are they so important?  Because we are a consumer-based society where a college’s reputation, prestige and brand does matter!
