Washington Monthly College Rankings are out

The Washington Monthly

BACK TO SCHOOL….U.S. News & World Report publishes its university rankings every year, and every year people complain about them. So starting in 2005 we decided to do more than just complain, and instead came out with our own rankings — based not on reputation or endowment size, but rather on how much of a contribution each university actually makes to the country. This year’s #1 school? Texas A&M.

Maybe the fact that Texas A&M comes in first in the Washington Monthly rankings as opposed to 62nd in the U.S. News & World Report rankings will get the attention of some Texans. UT Austin moved up to 19th in the Washington Monthly over it’s 44th place in the U.S. News ranking. Take a look, it’s definitely a different way of evaluating what constitutes a “good” school.
