A year ago, a number of news organizations started a trend of highlighting college admissions trends, with many news organizations focusing on the top five or six schools for students to choose from.
The rankings, which are based on an online survey conducted by U.S. news outlets in May 2017, are based primarily on academic quality, but also on admissions performance, career and community goals and other factors.
The top schools, in descending order, are ranked in terms of admissions performance.
The rankings have generated a lot of buzz among students and alumni, with a large number of schools dropping from the list in 2017.
In this article, we’re going to look at which schools are ranked highly and what their future potential is, and where students are looking to attend.
A few schools in this year’s list have been around for years, so you can find the full list of schools in our top five colleges rankings at the bottom of this post.
