Admissions - U.S. News & World Report Best College Rankings
The Academy scores big in latest U. S. News and World Report annual “best colleges” ranking statistics!
In 1983 U.S. News & World Report decided that an information vehicle was needed to help high school seniors compare colleges. In SOME cases the cost of a private education will come second only to the price of an individual’s home, making college choice a very important life decision. This fact has become even more pertinent over the twenty-five years U. S. News has been publishing their annual college ranking lists. Today, a number of private universities can cost close to $200,000 for a four year degree.
The magazine has changed their methods of rating colleges and universities over the years, attempting to keep up with a changing world. Today, their focus is on quantifying the success a school has in graduating students.
We are happy to announce that the 2013 edition, in the category of Best Baccalaureate Colleges, North, U.S. News has ranked Massachusetts Maritime Academy number eight in the Regional Colleges (North) Rankings.
