Top Ten Best Colleges


The Top Ten

1 Harvard University

Harvard isn't the smartest school in the country anymore. Though famous people went here, MIT and Princeton are both better schools

Harvard hands down is the best school in not only the country but the whole world. I couldn't dream of being going there and 95 percent of the world can't either.

Harvard is the best, are you kidding me? Cool history, really good science and math, although they do need to work on their athletics.

Lol all u nerds

3 Stanford University

Really good school and so pretty. You must be so skilled in so many activities to get into a University like Stanford. Almost all the sports teams are impossible to make and your grades must be 3.8 to 4.5

El-Oh-El I'm not even in high school and I wanna go here

Oh man I wish! You have to have a near impossible gpa, and be the best at sports in the nation! My dream is to get a scholarship for soccer here, but the chances of that are... Well basically I have no chance.

You got to be smart to go to Stanford

4 University of Oxford

Far harder to get into than Harvard because admission is actually based on merit (rather than how much your daddy donated...)

You can get into Oxford 3 times before you get into Harvard once.

It should be in number 1

Oxford is an extremley hard college to get into my mom says its harder than Harvard University

5 Princeton University

Come on, people, Princeton is way better than Harvard! It provides a better campus, has a better graduation rate, and it is cheaper! I agree that Harvard is an amazing college, but I think Princeton is much better. - yuki-blue

I could have sworn Princeton was number one not seven that's MIT Harvard is number two I've looked up practically a million times its number one people why harvard

Seriously people! Princeton is number one on a government funded website, and Harvard is number two. Do you see the problem here? - eosgood13

I think that Princeton is the best no matter what.

6 California Institute of Technology

This is a collage I'm thinking of going to because I want to be a space engineer and anything technology related CIT is boss at. If only they had a better soccer team


They have the best math and science programs overall, some tied with Harvard, some better than Harvard's. Except for biology which I believe goes to Princeton (but I'm not 100% sure).

How couldn't this be #1? I think this pearson should know that all of the SMARTEST people went HERE. I just don't understand at all. I just don't

A terrific college with great people.
Get to do whatever you want as long as you are building something.

10 Northwestern University

This is the place for success in the Midwest

The Contenders

12 Brigham Young University

Yay BYU. I mean I'm super surprised BYU is #12. The school is great and the sport teams are too. Kinda.

BYU is an amazing place to learn! Enter to learn, go forth to serve!

13 Ohio State

14 Notre Dame

15 Dartmouth College
16 Columbia University V 1 Comment
17 University of California, Berkeley

Stellar alum, an important role in the social revolution of the 60's, and a cute mascot. What else could you ask for in a university?

Voted best public university in the world. 48 Academic Depts in the top 5 in the US - unmatched. 16 Academic Department ranked #1 in the US - unmatched. 72 Nobel Prize Winners. Top 5 in Academic Reputation by ARWU (China), THE (England), and the USNWR (US). 16 Chemical elements discovered. Third largest library system in North America. Universally regarded as the strongest PhD PowerHouse in the world. Alums include founders of Apple, eBay, Intel, Sun Microsystems, Bechtel Engineering, Rotten Tomatoes, The Gap, the creator of Dilbert, Rocky/Bullwinkle and numerous foreign Heads of State. UC "CAL" Berkeley is one mean giant in academia. Any academic ranking that does not include Berkeley in at least the top 5 is a complete joke.

18 Wisconsin

Well I mean Madison is great I go there the dorms aren't the best but our education is like the teachers top priority I don't know why this isn't in the top 10

19 Duke

Duke is such an amazing school you have to be super skilled to get there! IT HAS TO BE A TOP TEN! - 12345678901234567890

If you want to have a good life you need to go to duke

How Duke not on here. Duke could easily be better than penn state

20 USC

My brother goes here and this college is the best
