Ranking the Rankings


Well this is meta. From DIY Learning, an online guide to higher education, comes a ranking of the rankings of sorts. DIY has compiled a list of the “Top 50 College Rankings Blogs.”

While it’s a little unclear what factors DIY used to determine which guides were the best, according to DIY the Washington Monthly’s annual College Guide rating was the sixth best college ranking system in the world.

One wonders what the Monthly would need to do to reach number one, a spot currently occupied by Campus Compare, an online database of information about 4000 American colleges and universities.
