Best Global Universities in 2022:
The Best Colleges ranking is based on a lot of careful research into academic, admissions, financial, and student life data from the U.S. Department of Education, as well as a lot of reviews from students and alums. U.S. colleges and universities are ranked based on more than 1,000 of the best. In this year’s rankings, ACT/SAT scores aren’t given as much weight as they used to be. This is because test scores aren’t as important in the college admissions process anymore.
