New England Schools Rank Among Best in Nation

CU Boulder maintains high marks among college rankings for 2017, 2018

Baylor University is ranked No. 75 among National Universities in the latest rankings by U.S. News & World Report.

A social mobility index released for the first time in 2015 ranked Tech first among MI colleges and universities (SMI) and 42 nationwide. The McIntire School of Commerce ranks in a four-way tie for seventh nationally in the overall business school ratings, and the management program ranked fifth.

Baylor is the second-highest ranked university in the Big 12. Yale came in fourth behind the University of Chicago, preventing an Ivy League trifecta. Cornell also sits at 71 out of 215 schools in the High School Counselor Rankings among the liberal arts colleges, which is a number that comes from high school counselor survey results over three years.

"We appreciate the top-tier ranking, but what matters most for students selecting a school is the match between the particular interests, abilities and ambitions of each individual student and the specific programs and opportunities offered by a particular school", UM spokesman Rick Fitzgerald said. And while US News & World is not the only college ranking, it is among the most closely watched.

U.S. News & World Report ranked almost 1,400 institutions from data mostly provided by the schools themselves.

The top schools on that list are names that almost everyone knows: Princeton first and Harvard second.

UC San Diego was ranked as the 42nd best national university, and ninth-best public school.

Regional colleges focus nearly entirely on a student's undergraduate experience and offer a broad range of programs in the liberal arts, as well as fields such as business, nursing and education.

According to the magazine, the list was compiled by asking college presidents, provosts and admissions deans to nominate colleges that are making the "most innovative improvements in terms of curriculum, faculty, students, campus life, technology or facilities". "Our overarching goal is to create the best possible programs for our students - graduate and undergraduate - to prepare them in roles of leadership and service to their communities and the world", Young says.

The rankings are determined by university statistics including assessments by administrators at peer schools, first-year retention rate, financial resources and alumni giving, according to its website.
