    You had to start another one.:shake: My daughter has a lot of high school classmates at many of these schools. They all think she has the best opportunities and can't believe where she has been and what she has done in four short years.

    Now Mongo - that particular ranking is based just on the opinion of guidance counselors.

    This is the overall Best Liberal Arts School ranking according to US News and World Report (look who's tied at 16):
    http://colleges.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-colleges/liberal-arts-rankings

    Just so everyone is happy - :smile:

    USMA -
    #16 National Liberal Arts College Ranking
    #3 Best Undergraduate Engineering Program
    #2 High School Counselor Rankings of National Liberal Arts Colleges

    USNA -
    #16 National Liberal Arts College Ranking
    #5 Best Undergraduate Engineering Program
    #1 High School Counselor Rankings of National Liberal Arts Colleges

    USAFA -
    #1 Regional Colleges (West) Ranking
    #5 Best Undergraduate Engineering Program

    USCGA -
    #1 Regional Colleges (North) Ranking

    USMMA -
    #3 Regional Colleges (North) Ranking

    Now this one cracks me up -
    USMA is on the list of 'A+ Options for B Students' (of schools from the National Liberal Arts Ranking) Really??? :confused:

    All 5 Service Academies did well! :thumb:

    May just be me but I doubt a straight B student is getting into USMA!

    … true. I was thinking more of the average student (average isn’t exactly the word I am looking for but I think it conveys my idea well enough)
