Princeton number 1 in US college rankings -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Princeton takes the top spot in the latest US News & World Report college rankings, breaking a three-year tie for No. 1 with Ivy League rival Harvard. Yale again took the No. 3 spot in the controversial but closely watched rankings, followed by the California Institute of Technology, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Stanford - all tied for fourth. The University of Pennsylvania drops from fourth to seventh, and Duke from fifth to eighth. The guide to "America's Best Colleges," hitting newsstands Monday, again names Williams the top liberal arts college. The University of California, Berkeley, is the top-rated public university, tied for No. 21 overall. The formula for the rankings includes variables such as graduation and retention rates, faculty and financial resources, and the percentage of alumni donating money to their alma mater. The biggest single variable is a reputation assessment by peer institutions. Many colleges criticize the rankings, but they take them seriously. The University of Chicago, facing complaints from alumni about its ranking, says this year it re-examined figures it was submitting in categories such as financial resources and concluded it was underreporting. The school's ranking shot up from 15th to No. 9. "If schools move up a couple points, down a couple points, that's not really meaningful to us," said executive editor Brian Kelly. "The difference between 1 and 10 is minuscule. Whether that's minuscule or not to a reader, that's up to them." It was the seventh straight year Princeton has been at least tied for the top ranking. The university issued a statement saying the institution was "pleased that our commitment to providing the highest quality undergraduate education continues to be recognized." But, it continued, "no methodical ranking can capture an institution's individual distinctiveness." The top national universities were: 1. Princeton University 2. Harvard University 3. Yale University 4. California Institute of Technology Massachusetts Institute of Technology Stanford University (tie) 7. University of Pennsylvania 8. Duke University 9. Columbia University Dartmouth University University of Chicago (tie)

LOOTE: Frequently Asked Questions Interviews If you have the opportunity, we encourage you to accept an invitation to meet with a member of one of our Princeton Alumni Schools Committees. We have volunteers in many areas in North America and throughout the world. If there are sufficient volunteers in your area, you will be contacted by an interviewer after you submit your application. An interview is not required for admission to Princeton and you will not be at a disadvantage if you happen to live in an area where our volunteers are not available. We do not conduct on-campus interviews, but we invite you to visit Princeton, if possible, to learn more about the University. Matriculation Students may only begin an undergraduate degree program at Princeton in the fall semester. Admitted students may request to defer their enrollment for one year in order to travel, work, perform military service, or to pursue other activities—as long as they do not enroll full-time at another college or university. Requests for deferrals, including extension for a second year, must be made in writing to the Admission Office. Transfer Admission Princeton does not offer a transfer admission option. We consider students who have begun college or university studies elsewhere to be transfer applicants. We do not permit such students to apply for freshman admission. Financial Aid Princeton offers one of the strongest need-based financial aid programs available. You may apply for financial aid at www.princeton.edu/aid. If you are unable to apply online, please refer to the Financial Aid Information and Application Instructions booklet (Class of 2011 edition available soon).
