    Re: Forbes Magazine's Top 650 Colleges

    Wipedia is always accurate right???


    In 2008, Forbes.com began publishing an annual list of "America's Best Colleges...They were criticized due to reliance on subjective sources (50% of the rankings depend on Who's Who in America and ratemyprofessor.com)[97] as well as for the lower rankings of many nationally recognized institutions, including Ivy League schools

      Only if it helps whatever argument you're trying to make. If not, just make it up, facts are optional on USCHO.

          Apparently, Northeastern was hurt by the fact that one of the factors was % of students that graduate in four years. Well duh. What's the percentage of the student body that's in the co-op program, which they know going in is probably more than a four year program for most of them?

              Northeastern takes offense to ranking.

                It's rather stupid to factor cost (student debt) into the rankings. If my car goes 0-60 in 5 seconds and yours does it in 4.8, yours is still a "better" car than mine even if it costs twice as much. At the edges, there will *always* be diminishing returns for increased cost - squeezing out that last 2% of performance can incur 20% (or more) of the cost.
                If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?
