In case you haven't noticed, it's college ranking season again. In my last post I discussed the new U.S.News rankings. Now, Parade Magazine has come out with their version of "rankings," euphemistically referred to as an "A-List."
In its press release (and also in the introduction to their A-List article), Parade says, "No disrespect to Harvard, Yale, and Princeton, but you don't need to attend a fabled Ivy to get a big-league education! In this Sunday's upcoming issue, PARADE Magazine asked high school counselors across the U.S. to recommend outstanding schools that often fly under the radar. The results—and the sticker prices—may surprise you. From the best business schools, sate colleges, schools with flex-schedules and more, PARADE presents its College A-List."
