Lumosity thinks we’re dunces.
Lumosity analyzed various colleges and universities in a study designed to test “the cognitive performance of their students.” Its study used the voluntary game scores of 89,699 college users to create a “Grand Index score,” which Lumosity then ranked by institution. Topping the list were MIT, Harvard, and Stanford, while Columbia interestingly came in at 61st and second to last among Ivies. Brown ranks at 31, Princeton at 39, Cornell at 62, NYU at 91, and Bob Jones University at 102. Here’s the top 10 of Lumosity’s Smartest Colleges:
