Unlike other lists, we pointedly ignore ephemeral measures such as school ‘reputation’ and ill-conceived metrics that reward wasteful spending.’ And they explain further: ‘We try and evaluate the college purchase as a consumer would:  Is it worth spending as much as a quarter of a million dollars for this degree?’To see the story click here: http://blogs.forbes.com/michaelnoer/2011/08/03/americas-top-colleges/(link is external)The magazine writes that they base the rankings on five categories: Post Graduate success (30%), which evaluates alumni pay and prominence,Student Satisfaction (27.5%), which includes professor evaluations and freshman to sophomore year retention rates,Debt (17.5%), which penalizes schools for high student debt loads and default rates,Four Year Graduation Rate (17.5%) andCompetitive Awards (7.5%), which rewards schools whose students win prestigious scholarships and fellowships like the Rhodes, the Marshall and the Fulbright.’  To see Saint Michael’s listing click here: http://www.forbes.com/colleges/saint-michaels-college/(link is external)    Other Vermont institutions that were ranked include Middlebury College (40th), Bennington College (223rd ), University of Vermont (247th), and Marlboro College (257th). As of August 9, the Forbes article on college rankings had received 259,325 views. We agree with Forbes that Saint Michael’s focuses on the things that matter most.
