Money magazine’s new college rankings are out, and they do not favor Georgia schools

For years, nervous parents and curious high school students have flocked to the annual U.S. News & World Report National University Rankings. However much or little the rankings actually mean, they’re certainly fun to look at—and other media outlets have been getting into the game.

Each year this quarter-million-strong cohort studies at one of the metro area’s fifty-seven colleges and universities.
