America's Best Colleges 2008

America’s Best Colleges 2008: National Universities:

To rank colleges and universities, U.S. News first assigns schools to a group of their peers, based on the basic categories developed by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching in 2006.

I kind of figured Vassar would have made this list, but rumor has it they asked not to be included because they disagreed with the way USNews was “grading” schools. Who knows, interesting list anyways. Note: apparently Vassar is #11 for liberal arts colleges.
