NEW: Holy Cross Ranks 41st in National Study by Forbes

Wednesday, August 01, 2012

 

The College of the Holy Cross ranks 41st overall in a new national study that evaluates the issues that matter most to students.

Schools were evaluated based on the issues that matter most to students such as: quality of teaching, great career prospects, high graduation rates and low-levels of debt. Reputation, academic selectivity are not considered in the analysis.  Harvard University was the state's highest ranking institution, placing sixth overall.  

The highly selective school of 2900 undergraduate students boasts a four year graduation rate of 89 percent; 83 percent of the college’s students who apply to medical or law school are admitted. 61 percent of the student population receives financial aid.

Forbes commissioned the study, which was conducted by the Center for College Affordability in Washington, DC.
