When it comes to applying to college, some people turn to the U.S. News & World Report's Top 25 List that comes out annually for guidance. Below is the Top 25 for 2009 in the "National Universities" category. According to U.S. News, "Schools in the National Universities category, such as Yale and UCLA, offer a full range of undergraduate majors, masters, and doctoral degrees. These colleges also are committed to producing groundbreaking research."
Keep in mind that these are not necessarily the "most popular" colleges according to number of applicants. Numerous lists are compiled annually, including a list of the best smaller, liberal arts colleges. *Please note that some rankings came out as "tied" and therefore numbers may be repeated.
Why is any of this important? Well believe it or not, a school's popularity and prestige plays a huge role in both the minds of the prospective students as well as the parents. With this in mind, iD Tech Camps and iD Teen Academies pride itself on offering students the opportunity to experience life on campus at many of the colleges below (and many more prestigious university locations that are not listed).
