Hamptons Teen: The 2016 Best Colleges rankings from NICHE
Don’t take this at face value. One would need to know exactly the criteria that was used to determine thee results, and a college that is ranked very low, may actually EXCEL in the program you are looking for, while a higher ranked college may have a terrible business or exercise science reputation. FIT is not ranked in the top 100, yet they are ranked #5 Globally for BEST Fashion Design Schools in the World. What I love about this list are the updated reviews from Students and Parents.

The 2016 Best Colleges ranking calculates millions of statistics and student reviews into one overall college ranking. The top ranked colleges are elite academic institutions that provide a good value, attract a diverse student body, and offer an exceptional college experience.
