Define competitive...

I recently saw Princeton Review's top 10 list of most competitive schools.  How do they define competitive?  How does a school get on the list?  I'm interested in Suffolk.

I'm not sure, but I think they polled students.

Yeah, its a poll.

Personally, I would define a competitive atmosphere as a place where I feel my success depends upon other people's failures. I would hate not being able to root for people and help them out cuz that would mean my 6 figure job goes down the drain. (hence, I like schools where almost all graduates land 6 figure jobs)

Yeah, from reading through the PR site, competitive seems to equal cutthroat.

I don't mind competitive... to an extent. But some cohesion and willingness to help others out is important to me whereever I end up.

In the old days before all research could be done by computer, people would hide books in the library. That is the defintion of cut throat
