The Wall Street Journal and the British Times Higher Education have released their ranking of U.S. Colleges. Their criteria:
The College Rankings are made up of 15 individual performance indicators designed to answer the questions that matter the most to students and their families: Does the college have plenty of resources to teach me properly? Will I get enough access to my teacher, and will I be engaged and stretched in the classroom? Does the college have a good academic reputation? What type of campus community is there? How likely am I to graduate, pay off my loans and get a good job?
Here are the top ten (tuition, room & board. salary after 10 years):
