Rankings

Forbes and US News provide rankings to the universities, which are trusted everywhere. But this is applicable only if the universities are located in the US. It is said that the more information that a prospective student has about a university, the better it is. The ranking of a university helps a student overcome the confusion of which university/college is right for them and also other prospects. Before taking admission, a student can assess the university chosen by them on various grounds like research excellence, the performance of its students after graduation, and their experience, among others. Notably, for the rankings, the two publications, US News and Forbes, are trusted everywhere. However, it should be noted that University of Saint Mary does not feature in the list of top colleges, according to the latest ranking of these two publications.
