Top 10 Best Colleges In America 2018, Ranked By WSJ

The third annual Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education College Rankings have been released. Topping the list once again is Harvard University, with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Yale University, Columbia University, and California Institute of Technology rounding out the top five.
Part of Harvard’s first-place ranking was the outcomes pillar, which “includes metrics on the graduation rate and the value added by the teaching at a college to graduate salary and to graduates’ ability to repay student debt.”
From the Wall Street Journal:

The WSJ/THE rankings emphasize how well a college will prepare students for life after graduation. The overall ranking is based on 15 factors across four categories: Forty percent of each school’s overall score comes from student outcomes, including a measure of graduate salaries, 30% from the school’s academic resources, 20% from how well it engages its students and 10% from the diversity of its students and staff.
The rankings include 189,000 responses from students to survey questions including how challenging they find their classes, how often faculty encourage them to apply classroom instruction to the real world, and whether they have opportunities to collaborate with classmates.
