Understanding the Attributes: What are Ultimate Outcomes?

We take three key goals of a college education: Financial Success, Friendship Development and Overall Happiness along with the college’s measure of Intellectual Capability (Intellectual Development rank by graduates, Graduation Rate rank and Student/Facility Ratio rank) and pair them to measure which colleges do the best job of delivering on each combination of benefits.

We believe these pairs are the single most effective means of understanding the type of graduate a college is likely to develop, relative to the other colleges we have measured.
