College Rankings – Should they drive where you decide to apply and attend college?
Seth Godin’s blog, “The problem with forced rankings”, outlines with great substance and clarity that rankings are not the end all gauge, by any stretch, for judging anything, leave alone your college choices.
Don’t let the rankings take the onus off of you in deciding what is important on where to apply, and eventually where to attend college. If you do, you could make some grave errors that could cost you money, time and your well being. Not something I’m willing to take a gamble on.
