The rankings covered 1,500 colleges and used 19 measures of academic quality, US News said in a press release issued in this regard.

“This year’s rankings placed a greater emphasis on social mobility and outcomes for graduating college students, demonstrating the most significant methodological change in the rankings’ history,” US News said.

“More than 50% of an institution’s rank now comprises varying outcome measures related to success in enrolling and graduating students from all backgrounds with manageable debt and post-graduate success. In addition, five factors were removed: class size, faculty with terminal degrees, alumni giving, high school class standing and the proportion of graduates who borrow federal loans,” it added.

In the ranking of best national universities, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) came second while Harvard and Stanford Universities jointly shared the third spot.
