States Ranked by Top Colleges

Read:  Harvard Brand Takes a Hit in Tough Economic Times

Listen to the article in English from China Daily

States are ranked by the number of the Top 225 Colleges and Universities that are located in each state.

When there is a tie, the ranks of the colleges are added together and the state with the lowest total number receives precedence, since that means their colleges were ranked higher in the various lists.

The Top Ten States, with the number of Top Colleges represented:

1.   New York (29)

2.   California (22)

3.  Pennsylvania (19)

4.  Massachusetts (19)

5.  Virginia (9)

6.  Texas (9)

7.  Ohio (8)

8.   Illinois (8)

10T.  Georgia (6)

10T.  Indiana (6)

Also noted are those schools that were Best of Class, whether first in the College or University list, or for one of the specialties called out.  Typically, these highly respected and venerable institutions, such as the Juilliard School or the Cooper Union, or even the US Military Acadamies are shunted into ‘other’ or ‘unranked’ categories.

To see the complete list of Colleges and Universities as ranked by state, see the TrendTopper Top 225 Colleges and Universities guide.
