Texas Universities on Newsweek's Best Colleges Lists

0 Comments

Kaplan and Newsweek just released a summer 2011- Finding the Right College for You guide. It contains "exclusive Newsweek rankings". Instead of ranking every American college 1 to infinity, this list breaks them down to the top 25 colleges in each category, such as the best schools for jocks, sun worshippers, do-gooders and future power brokers.

Several Texas universities made the lists:

Rice University (23% acceptance rate)

#25 Most Desirable School

#10 Most Desirable Urban School

 

#20 Brainiac Schools

 

University of Texas at Austin (44% acceptance rate)

#12 Most Desirable Large School

 

Texas A&M; University (70% acceptance rate)

#24 Most Desirable Large School

 

Surprisingly, Texas school did not make the list for the school where students can get a "great education and a great tan". Most of the schools on that list were in California and Arizona.
