John Carroll University earns high rankings in “master’s programs” and “affordability”
Washington, DC – August 17, 2007 – John Carroll University earned the #7 spot among master’s programs in the 2008 edition of “America’s Best Colleges” by U.S.News & World Report, the nation’s leading source of service journalism and news. Additionally, John Carroll earned a #13 ranking in the category Great Schools, Great Prices. The exclusive rankings – which this year feature some substantial changes in methodology – will be published in the magazine’s August 27 issue, on newsstands Monday, August 20, and available online at www.usnews.com/colleges beginning today.
“We're always pleased when a national publication recognizes John Carroll’s programs and validates the great work we know happens here every day,” said John Carroll University Vice President for Enrollment, Brian Williams.
The annual rankings – in which U.S. News groups schools based on categories created by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching – provide an unmatched resource for parents and students contemplating one of life’s most challenging financial decisions.
“For nearly a quarter century, consulting the U.S.News & World Report rankings has been a vital first step for prospective college students and their parents in the complex process of determining which institution best fits their goals,” said U.S.News & World Report’s editor, Brian Kelly. “Designed as a one-stop resource, the rankings supply hard data and analysis to help college applicants make apples-to-apples comparisons of schools across the country. Through these rankings, and the ‘America’s Best Colleges’ guidebook, our goal is to help equip students and their families to make a knowledgeable decision based on clear, comparative research.”
Using a proprietary methodology, the annual U.S.News & World Report rankings represent the most comprehensive look at how schools stack up based on a set of 15 widely accepted indicators of excellence, and help consumers evaluate and compare data compiled from more than 1,400 accredited four-year schools.
