College Rankings Questioned

The Annapolis Group, a consortium of more than 120 private liberal arts schools, is questioning the validity of annual "best colleges" rankings compiled by U.S. News & World Report.
The Annapolis Group includes six Virginia schools that are featured in the magazine's 2007 rankings of the nation's top liberal arts colleges: Washington and Lee University, Sweet Briar College, Randolph College, Hampden-Sydney College, Hollins University and Randolph-Macon College. All six schools said yesterday they will continue to provide academic information that is considered in rankings, but either have stopped or are likely to stop participating in U.S. News' reputational survey.
