Please note that unlike most other college ranking methods out there, our ranking is based solely on objective, measurable data, such as student test scores and the like. There are no subjective factors considered at all. The main factors used in the ranking, as well as their weights in the ranking formula, are given below

It is also our goal to give you the college ranking that is most appropriate for you. Hence, if you do not like this ranking, just refresh the page until you do. As noted above, every single ranking given by this page is purely objective and therefore can be relied upon to give accurate results.
