Columbia University is one step closer to being the Greatest University in the US™. U.S. News, whose college rankings high schoolers all over the country obsess over despite its debatable accuracy, rated Columbia University as the third best university in the US, which is the highest that Columbia’s ever been ranked. Sounds pretentious and fake, but whatever. Cool stuff. Columbia is ranked behind Princeton and Harvard, and is tied with MIT, UChicago, and Yale.
U.S. News ranks colleges according to 16 different factors including degree completion, retention rate, social mobility (including Pell Grant graduation rates), faculty resources (including class size, faculty salary, etc.), etc. You probably don’t care how we got third place, though, just that we did. Now we just have to beat Princeton and Harvard to stop being the second loser.
I’m kidding I love Columbia!! Alma Mater on the Hudson Shore!!! Wake the echoes of the Hudson Valley!! Knickerbocker something something! So proud!!
