Ranking Methods

Because we know that like shoes, one ranking system does not fit everyone's needs, we employ several methods to rank colleges, and allow our customers to choose as they see fit. Our current offerings are given below.

Note: Our database is updated continuously via T3 connections to all major universities and colleges. The continuous data feeds and the kanaydel effect (see Methodology section for a description of this phenomenon) can cause our rankings to change very quickly. Pressing the reload button on your browser will give you an up-to-the-second evaluation. Our ability to monitor universities in real time gives us vastly superior rankings in comparison to those of magazines.

Warning! The methodologies used are owned by the College Ranking Service. Attempts to comprehend these highly complicated algorithms and exploit our database may result in permanent damage to your hard drive.
