Go Terps! Very cool to see them so high!
Oct 5th, 2009 at 06:16 GMT
The placement of some certain schools on here makes me scratch my head...Maryland does not belong amongst the ivy league schools. Cal Tech is literally the best engineering school in the US. The 50 selections are all fine, but I strongly disagree with their order.
Oct 5th, 2009 at 06:36 GMT
As a Badger I am disappointed not to see UW-Madison as one of the schools.
Oct 5th, 2009 at 06:48 GMT
This is just the rankings according to some random blog/website. Going to the website, their rankings are pretty much BS. An "ethnically diverse faculty" is more of a factor than average incoming GPA?
Oct 5th, 2009 at 06:50 GMT
Needs more location of school.
Oct 5th, 2009 at 06:56 GMT
Being from Maryland, it's nice to see the Terps that highly ranked, but they don't deserve it over Berkeley or UNC, among public schools. I also noticed that the color scheme matched Maryland's school colors. Coincidence?
Oct 5th, 2009 at 08:09 GMT
I really don't get this list. Obviously, you can't go wrong with any of these 50 great schools, but some of the placement is just baffling-- Cal Tech and Berkeley should both be higher (the latter WAY higher), for starters. Texas is another totally underrated school. Weird list.

@EmTeeZ: Despite my negativeness a fun quiz nonetheless.
Oct 5th, 2009 at 13:31 GMT
Even as a student at Maryland, I still don't think we deserve to be that high.
Oct 5th, 2009 at 14:03 GMT
some abbreviations would be nice, like UT Austin, Penn State, San Diego.
Oct 5th, 2009 at 14:25 GMT
What the huh? Berkeley isn't as good as Penn State or Maryland?
Oct 5th, 2009 at 14:30 GMT
Also, why are virtually all of these research universities, except Amherst and Swarthmore are liberal arts colleges, and Loyola, Fairfield, and Monmouth are master's universities?
Oct 5th, 2009 at 15:26 GMT
This quiz was already done, but from a much more credible source.
Oct 5th, 2009 at 17:09 GMT
I have never seen a list before that puts University of Chicago above Harvard, Princeton, and Yale. That's just plain wrong. What kind of list is this? And furthermore, to see my alma mater (Northwestern) behind University of Maryland is absolute heresy.
Oct 5th, 2009 at 17:39 GMT
Maryland over MIT! LOL!
Oct 5th, 2009 at 18:20 GMT
anything that lists BC over Notre Dame is fine by me.
Oct 5th, 2009 at 19:01 GMT
@lalalala: San Diego needs the UC in front of it for clarity, since there is a private University of San Diego.
Oct 5th, 2009 at 20:04 GMT
While I'm glad to see my bachelors (Fairfield) and masters (Maryland) alma maters on the list, I didn't even think to guess Fairfield. D'oh! And way to go Terps in beating Duke and UNC, since it doesn't happen in bball very often!
Oct 5th, 2009 at 21:01 GMT
this cannot be correct. how is chicago 1? princeton is supposed to be 1.
Oct 5th, 2009 at 22:05 GMT
i go to cornell and even i think this list is complete bull even though they place us a bit higher than most lists.
Oct 6th, 2009 at 02:11 GMT
"Washington" should be good enough for Washington U. of MO.
Oct 6th, 2009 at 03:18 GMT
CIT should be acceptable for California Institute of Technology. Wash U should be acceptable for Washington U of Missouri.
Oct 6th, 2009 at 13:32 GMT
You should probably accept "Case Western" for Case Western Reserve.
Oct 9th, 2009 at 07:52 GMT
Yeah this is literally just the opinion of one blog/website, and is no more credible than anyone else on the internet randomly making a list. There are tons of other sources for these types of lists, created by experienced people who do detailed research and study this stuff for a living. Try to find one of those rankings if you want to do a quiz like this.
Oct 13th, 2009 at 01:27 GMT
What an odd mixture and an odd ordering! Lehigh above Berkeley and Virginia? Maryland above MIT and CalTech? Great state schools like Wisconsin, Illinois, Purdue, and Colorado not even making the cut, yet lesser schools like Florida, Loyola, Fairfield, and Monmoth on the list? Amherst and Swarthmore, but no Williams, Smith, or Carlton? I just don't get it.
Oct 14th, 2009 at 23:23 GMT
Color is way obnoxious. Also, can you give us the state where the school is located to make this easier?
Oct 27th, 2009 at 07:44 GMT
Awful list, Amherst college in the top 10 but Williams not even listed? They are tied at #1 for liberal arts colleges on US News, probably the only reasonably credible ranking for colleges/universities. Maryland and Florida especially ridiculous.
Apr 8th, 2010 at 08:18 GMT
yeah I dont understand the inconsistency of liberal arts schools getting thrown in. where are williams, middlebury and davidson? OH and maryland doesn't belong on this list at all, much less in the top 12.
May 7th, 2010 at 19:13 GMT
this is actually universities. Change the title.
Jul 15th, 2010 at 21:33 GMT
how many ivy league schools can you name?
Sep 2nd, 2010 at 01:33 GMT
maryland, loyola, temple, monmouth, and fairfield aren't that good by any means. bc should be lower, chicago shouldn't be number 1, notre dame, vanderbilt, emory, rice, michigan, ucla, carnegie mellon, virginia should be higher. basically really bad list, especially maryland? not that good of a school, not even that good a public school, rutgers is better
Apr 19th, 2011 at 20:59 GMT
The credibility of the source has already been commented upon, but the site said that Northwestern is located in Chicago, Illinois. All undergraduate studies are in Evanston along with graduate Kellogg school of management, only Feinberg school of medicine and the law school are in the city.
