PR says my school isn't so bad afterall...

very interesting...

Hunter College is One of the Country’s Best 357 Colleges


According to a survey by The Princeton Review of over 110,000 students at 357 top colleges around the country, Hunter College ranks #4 in the diverse student population category. Hunter is also listed as one of the “best bargains” around, coming in #12 on the list of best bargains among public colleges.


Robert Franek, the lead author for the survey, spoke about Hunter on Good Day New York, saying that Hunter had an excellent regional reputation, but deserved a national reputation as well.


Lists of the top 20 ranking colleges in 64 different categories are in the 2005 edition of The Princeton Review's annual college guide, "The Best 357 Colleges,” which goes on sale August 17.  Rankings for 60 lists are based solely on student answers to survey questions: four lists factor in institutional data. A ranking list appearance does not reflect The Princeton Review's opinion of the college, but a high consensus of opinion among the college's surveyed students about it.

My UG is so silly proud of itself for its seven #1 ratings. Mind you, not every school wants these #1s... but they're bragging all over the place and tickled none the less:

1. Great College Library
2. Stone Cold Sober
3. Got Milk? (beer usage reported low)
4. Scotch and Soda, hold the scotch (hard liquor usage reported low)
5. Don't Inhale (marijuana usage reported low)
6. Students pray on a regular basis (most religious students)
7. Future Rotarians and Daughters of the American Revolution (???)

Yeah, it's BYU.  8) (No offense taken... it seriously is proud of those rankings! Alumni email is full of how tickled they are.)
And that's why it is so funny I'm trying to go to U of Colorado.

Are you serious? Now that is somebody who needs a legal name change if ever there was one!

It is BYU, I looked at the rankings yesterday.

My undergrad cracked the top 5 for "Election, what Election?"  That is hilarious, because it is so true.  In 2000, people quietly went about their business, voted, then made fun of all the people that couldn't figure out the simple ballots (and the fact that Monica Moorehead was a candidate on them).

Ha ha!  Which school is that?
