The 2020 U.S. New World Report Best College Ranking is out! I often hear many of my fellow independent educational consultants, guidance counselors, parents and students state 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!
Here is the list of the top 20 college/universities:
1. Princeton University
3. Columbia University | Massachusetts Institute of Technology | Yale University
6. Stanford University | University of Chicago | University of Pennsylvania
9. Northwestern University
10. Duke University | Johns Hopkins University
12. California Institute of Technology | Dartmouth College
14. Brown University
15. University of Notre Dame | Vanderbilt University
17. Cornell University | Rice University
19. Washington University in St. Louis
20. University of California – Los Angeles
