College Rankings

Washington Monthly has published its College Rankings. These are based more on notion of how the university serves the nation and is based on such outputs are the number of graduates in service postions or that go on to get PhD's and graduation rates of poorer students rather than the size of the endowment or faculty salaries.

Their ranking system has resulted in some unusual outcomes. South Carolina State University ranked 9th and Alabama A&M was 24th. Neither even appeared on US News' rankings and yet here both were ahead of most of the Ivy League including Harvard and Princeton (US News' #1 and #2 schools).
