U.S. News National University Rankings for 2017

U.S. News National University Rankings for 2017

We present the top 29 National Universities in the U.S. News and World report rankings. We only list facts that are available for free. We also add the enrollments, showing how most peak out at about 8,000 undergraduate students. That means that the entering class is less than 2,000 students. Applicants should not feel badly if they do not make it into these schools.

The enrollments at UC Berkeley and UCLA each match that of about four or five of these private colleges. Of course our 10 campus system has to serve the University students for California’s population of 37 million, the largest US state. The difference seen by students is that the University of California generally has a student to teacher ratio of 19:1, while private Universities can have a 7:1 ratio.

Ties in rankings are reported as repeated ranking numbers.
