Data sources

We source data from a variety of publicly available sources, including the CollegeBoard, USnews, and the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), as well as others. These sources provide us with a wealth of information about each college and university, including admissions statistics, graduation rates, student demographics, faculty credentials, and much more.


Once we have gathered the data, we conduct our own analysis to determine how to rank each college or university. Our analysis is based on a variety of factors, including the quality of the academic programs, the reputation of the faculty, the success of graduates in their chosen careers, and other important metrics.

Rankings assessments

Based on our analysis, we create unique college rankings assessments that are designed to provide prospective students and their families with a clear understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of each college or university. Our rankings assessments are intended to be used as a starting point for research and exploration, and we encourage students and their families to dig deeper into each college or university to learn more about the programs and opportunities available.

Overall, our methodology for creating college rankings assessments is based on a rigorous and thorough approach that draws on the latest data and analysis to provide students and their families with the information they need to make informed decisions about their higher education options.
