Forbes List Of The Top 10 Undergraduate Colleges In America
The American education system has taken a beating over the past few years, but we still have some of the best undergraduate universities in the world on our soil and Forbes has taken a moment to acknowledge them in order from worst to first. Being that they ranked 650 schools, we decided to make it a little easier and crop out the top ten.
The rankings, which are compiled exclusively for Forbes by the Washington, D.C.-based Center for College Affordability and Productivity, focus on the things that matter the most to students: quality of teaching, great career prospects, high graduation rates and low-levels of debt. They do not attempt to assess a school’s reputation, nor are they a measure of academic selectivity and we pointedly ignore any metrics that would encourage schools to engage in wasteful spending.
Hit the flipper to see which prestigious schools are the creme de la creme.
