    LaTech MONEY's Best Colleges: LaTech #1 in LA, #2 in CUSA

    More Good News for LaTech (National in ()'s )

    Louisiana: 1. Louisiana Tech (235) 2. LSU-BR (349) 3. ULL (521) 4. Tulane (601) 5. Loyola-NO (649) 6. Grambling (726)

    CUSA: 1. Rice (4) 2. Louisiana Tech (235) 3. UNC-C (367) 4. ODU (492) 5. WKU (556) 6. FIU (598) 7. UAB (651) 8.-14. (unranked)


    Here's a quick look at how MONEY determined which of the country's roughly 1,500 four-year colleges and universities deliver the most value:
    • Initial cut. MONEY screened out schools with graduation rates below the median and those facing financial difficulties.
    • Ranking factors. The remaining colleges were ranked on 21 factors in three equally weighted categories: educational quality, affordability, and alumni earnings fromPayScale.com.
    • Special value measure. Included: a "value added" grade that considered how well students at each school did vs. what would be expected given their economic and academic backgrounds and the institution's mix of majors.
    • Focus on affordability. Among the factors considered: merit aid, parent and student borrowing, the length of time to graduate, tuition increases, and other measures.

    That's pretty good. Usually we're #2 in the state.

    Surprised Grambling made the top 2000.

    The OP linked an old list. Grambling is not ranked in the latest Money rankings.

    Here's the 2016-17 version: http://new.money.com/money/best-coll...best-colleges/

    And the link that shows Louisiana Tech is the best college in Louisiana: http://time.com/money/4398295/best-c...m/louisiana-2/

    This is awesome news!

    Here's the 2016-17 version
    Thanks Dawg06! Someone posted (on the Forbes Forum) the 2016 Center for World University Rankings ( http://cwur.org/2016.php ) World Top 1000 out of 25000+ judged, so here's the summary for that as well:

    Louisiana (State/National/World): LSU-BR (1/80/88), Tulane (2/110/288), UNO (3/181/633), Louisiana Tech (4/189/667), rest (unranked)

    CUSA (Conf./National/World): Rice (1/59/114), UAB (2/67/147), FIU (3/176/603), ODU (4/183/643), Louisiana Tech (5/189/667), UTSA (6/192/696), UNT (7/201/748), UNC-C (8/204/765), FAU (9/213/864), USM (10/215/880), UTEP (11/224/967), rest (unranked)

    CWUR publishes the only global university ranking that measures the quality of education and training of students as well as the prestige of the faculty members and the quality of their research without relying on surveys and university data submissions.

    So, we're in the top 67% of ranked in the world, top 2.7% of world judged, top 4 in Louisiana, and top 36% in the conference. Here's the LA summary (with Oxford as comparison)

    World Rank Institution Location National Rank Quality of Education Alumni Employment Quality of Faculty Publications Influence Citations Broad Impact Patents Score

    Yeah, surprised me as well! Looks like they think they have better citations and broad impact. But we crush them on Alumni Employment which is what Money was testing
