U.S. News & World Report 2019 College Rankings

U.S. News & World Report unveiled the 2019 Best Colleges, with data on more than 1,800 schools across the country.  While the use of college rankings is debatable, it can be a useful starting point.  Also, this year’s college rankings, U.S. News & World Report has changed a number of elements in how it calculates a school’s ranking. Most of the changes reflect an increasing focus on “social mobility” metrics (though there is a debate over whether these adjustments worked). Two changes impact the world of college admissions tests: 1) the weight of a school’s SAT/ACT scores dropped from 8.125% to 7.75% in calculating the rankings and 2) rankings no longer take into account acceptance rates.
