Top US Institutions Announced by College Discovery Site

College Raptor, a leading mobile-first college planning platform that helps families discover colleges based on academic and cultural fit, as well as personalized estimates of actual cost, has released their Best Colleges Rankings for 2019.

This year’s rankings includes lists such as Top 50 Best Colleges in the US, the Top 25 Best Research Colleges, the Top 25 Best Colleges in the Northeast, and many more.

New lists have been added for 2019 which include Top 10 Colleges with Tuition Under $20,000, Top 10 Colleges for Women in Business, and Top 10 Most Valuable Colleges for Computer Science.

College Raptor believes that rankings are a factor to consider when determining a college selection, but they should not be the only component. For a more personal approach, students and parents can visit which utilizes artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms to generate individual match scores based on personal preferences, academic scores, and families’ financial situation at any US institution.

“There are over 4,500 colleges and universities in the US and it can be difficult to know where to start the discovery process. Our rankings are designed to highlight the best schools in the country based on factors including graduation rates, campus diversity, endowment per student, among other key elements,” said Bill Staib, College Raptor’s CEO. “But, these rankings should only be used as a jumping off point to see what is out there. Students are encouraged to use intelligent platforms like to help find the schools that are best for them.”

Since 2014, College Raptor has been producing its Best College Rankings to highlight an institution’s overall health and quality. Our rankings are based on a number of specific factors that are combined to form a single weighted score, which determines a school’s overall rank.
