U.S. News 2018: We Hold at #11

We neither gained nor lost anything in the 2018 U.S. News ranking:

Phil breathes a sigh of relief that our longterm downward trend has stabilized for the time being:

We stayed at #11, tied with Hopkins (which moved down a notch) and Northwestern (which moved up). Caltech replaced Hopkins at #10.

In happier news, we regained our Best Undergraduate Teaching slot at #2 (up from #7 last year, which had been a precipitous drop).

In Best Colleges for Veterans, we were #2 behind Stanford. In the Best Value Colleges & Universities, we were #7. And in the 2018 High School Counselor Rankings of National Universities, we tied for #5.

Addendum: An alumnus writes in:

The real ranking is done by the College alums and students and their ranking overall is low enough to cause them to stop sending the college any more money. That’s the vote that counts.
