The 2009 edition of The Princeton Review's Best Colleges came out today. Overall we've moved up in all categories...which could be a good or bad thing. Here's how Vassar did:
Least Religious Schools - #9 (#12 in 2008)
More to Do on Campus - #13 (#15)
Town-Gown Relations are Strained - #12 (#14)
Best College Theater - #8 (#10)
Birkenstock-Wearing, Tree-Hugging, Clove-Smoking Vegetarians - #9 (#15)
We no longer made the categories for Most Beautiful Campus (last year #13), Students Most Nostalgic for Bill Clinton (#16), and Reefer Madness (#19).
Vassar received an academic rating of 96 and an admissions rating of 97.
Of course, can we really trust these "ratings?" Wesleyan, for example, got #14 on Town-Gown Relations. Really? Plus, Cappy says ratings don't really mean anything anyway.
