UCLA ranked number 2 in the nation in a "different" kind of ranking


In contrast to the U.S News and World report college rankings which tend to be dominated by exclusive Ivy Leagues, editor's at the Washington Monthly rated schools based on a set of variables aimed at finding out what schools "give back" the most to the country and their communities. Not surprising that 4 out of the top 10 come from our very own UC system. While I am of the belief that college "rankings" are like pre-season sports polls - highly arbitrary and hardly conclusive, it is interesting to see how schools measure up from a different perspective.
