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 generally considered that the ranking of any university helps a prospective student in a lot of ways. While taking admission to a particular college/university, its ranking helps the student determine various factors that include its research excellence, the performance of its students after completion of the degree, student experience, and academic success. The rankings by US News and Forbes are considered trustworthy by applicants as well as experts. Wichita State University, however, doesn't feature in the list of top colleges, according to the latest rankings of US News and Forbes.
