  • U.S. News college rankings: The big gainers and big decliners over three years

    The Washington Post - 09/10/2013

    Here is The Post’s review of major movement on the U.S. News national universities list since the 2010-11 edition, released three years ago. The analysis encompasses schools that were on the top 200 lists this year and three years ago. (Yes, we know there is a national liberal arts list too. We’ll try to look at that soon.)

    First, the gainers.

    ●San Diego State University had the largest jump, 31 places, to 152.

    ●Up 25 were the Polytechnic Institute of New York University (to 128) and the University of Massachusetts at Lowell (to 158).

    ●Up 21 was the University of Cincinnati (to 135). Up 20 was Northeastern University (to 49), which was notable because big gains are rarer at the high end of the scale.
