Once again it is that time of year when US News comes out with their college rankings and people start to go crazy. I have discussed my thoughts on the rankings many times before and won’t go into it again. OK, just one comment. The picture at the right is not a mistake. It says ranking 2011 because the difference in most of the rankings from 2011 to 2013 are almost non existent.
However, there is a new resource out discussing the college rankings. This resource is from the National Association for College Admissions Counseling which is the professional group for college admissions officers, high school counselors and independent counselors like me.
Here is a link to the article talking about college rankings. If you are truly interested in what the rankings mean, and how they are decided, you need to read this article.
