The new college rankings from U.S. News & World Report were published on Tuesday and as usual, their release was greeted with some controversy, but not just about which schools are on the list and where they're ranked.
For the record, this year Princeton has the top spot alone, after tying with Harvard last year.
Some, however, say the rankings really don't offer that much useful information and are contributing to the sky-rocketing costs of a college education.
Even President Obama has addressed the problem, saying that we need a new system.
During a speech last month at the University of Buffalo, he said, "We're going to start rating colleges not just by which college is the most selective, not just by which college is the most expensive, not just by which college has the nicest facilities -- you can get all that on the existing rating systems. What we want to do is rate them on who's offering the best value so students and taxpayers get a bigger bang for their buck."
