In Case You Missed It: Super Ranking-Top New England Colleges 2013
Saturday, March 09, 2013
What are New England's 86 best colleges and universities?
GoLocal had the answer this week, revealed in its 2nd annual Super Ranking: Top New England Colleges 2013.
After hundreds of hours of research and assessment, GoLocal named the region's best--from major universities to tiny liberal arts colleges--in a super-ranking that combined the nation's top educational rankings with grassroots student-oriented assessments. The result: a fresh view of how the full educational experience stacks up… from the Ivies to the NESCAC, and beyond.
In search of a truly well-rounded snapshot of each college and university in New England, GoLocal utilized a combination of rankings derived from national sources, including US News & World Report, the Princeton Review, Forbes Magazine, and Washington Monthly, as well as Inside College, the Daily Beast, and College Prowler. From there, our researchers assessed more than 60 different factors, from overall quality rankings both nationally and regionally to rankings for best professors, housing, diversity, nightlife, career preparation, social/academic balance, and of course, food.
There was substantial changing of places among New England's Top 10, beginning at the very top. The 2012 #1 school, Yale University, traded places with Harvard, which moved up from its 2012 #2 spot to take top prize in 2013. While #3 MIT and #4 Brown held their places for the second year, Dartmouth College moved up from #7 last year to round out the Top 5, knocking Bowdoin College to #6 and Williams College from the #6 spot down a notch to #7.
