Why JUST ranks top

For the 19th consecutive year the College of William & Mary has been ranked sixth among public national universities by U.S. News and World Report

The top 10 public schools in the US are Cal-Berkeley, UCLA, Virginia, Michigan, North Carolina, William & Mary, Georgia Tech, Cal-Santa Barbara, Cal-Irvine and Cal-San Diego. "We are very proud of that status and find it to be one of our primary attractions for our new and transfer students". "It confirms the high quality of education and standard of excellence that have become synonymous with the University of Oklahoma".

The University of Chicago ranks No. 3 in the U.S. News and World Report rankings.

Louisiana Tech and Louisiana State University were the only two public institutions in the state to achieve a Tier One National Universities designation. A total of eight Indian universities made it to this list and University of Delhi has been ranked as India's top provider of highly successful alumni.

Clemson University once again is ranked among the top universities in the country by U.S.News & World Report.

"We are pleased to continue to increase in rankings as announced by U.S. News & World Report and other recent publications".

The two schools share the same ranking as Emory University in Atlanta and the University of Southern California. There was a three-way tie for fifth place among Columbia University, Stanford University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The website boasts "nearly 50 different types of numerical rankings and lists to help students narrow their college search".

Only schools ranked in or near the top half of their categories are included, because U.S. News considers the most significant values to be among colleges that are above average academically.

NC State also ranked 44th on the list of the best colleges for veterans, moving up 15 spots this year.

However, it was IIT-Kharagpur that fell the most on the Graduate Employability Ranking for 2018, dropping from 81st position for 2017 to the 251st position.

High school counselors from both public and private schools were surveyed and asked which universities they think offer the best undergraduate education to their students. The four colleges come in just below Georgetown University and just ahead of Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh.

In August, Kentucky Wesleyan was recognized by Princeton Review as a "Best in the Southeast" school for the 14th consecutive year.

U.S. News & World Report today unveiled its 2018 Best Colleges rankings and UCLA tied Berkeley.
