Top 20 'smartest' public colleges ranked
- The College of William and Mary tops a new list of the public colleges with the smartest students.
- The top 20 list, by Business Insider, was compiled using lists of the “smartest girls” and “smartest guys” from Niche.com.
- Rounding out the top five are: the University of California, Berkeley at No. 2; the Georgia Institute of Technology; the University of Virginia; and the University of California, Los Angeles.
This list won’t be confused with the infamous U.S. News & World Report rankings. But who can resist a list. The Niche website itself has more than 30 college lists and rankings.
Still, it's hard to imagine a significant number of prospective students giving much weight to many of these rankings.
