In the list of top public schools, the University of California system led the way with Berkeley first, Los Angeles second, Santa Barbara eighth, Irvine ninth, and San Diego and Davis tying for No. 10.
While the annual release includes multiple lists looking at everything from value schools to A+ schools for B students, the backbone of the effort is a ranking of national universities with more than 1,800 U.S.-based schools (both private and public).
The rankings are based on everything from graduation rate and class size to expert opinion and student excellence.
