America’s 10 Best Colleges and Their Scholarships
Just as high school students are getting into the thick of their college search, countless organizations release college rankings. The experts say that these rankings should be taken with a grain of salt, and they’re right. Finding the perfect college for you has nothing to do with the rankings. It’s about academic and social fit and in most cases, proximity to your home as well as tuition costs. But checking out the rankings is always interesting, if not just plain old fun. U.S. News and World Report, the annual publisher of the most prominent college rankings, has just released its list of America’s Best Colleges. We’re counting down the list with a Fastweb twist – check out the top 10 schools and some of their scholarships.
