I doubt that I am telling any tales out of school ... Historically, Jesuit institutions are usually seen as the most prestigeous and competative among Catholic schools, colleges and universities.
Georgetown is usually ranked first or second, depending on which ranking as the top Catholic university in the US (usually in a dead heat with some non-Jesuit school in Indiana). Boston College is usually ranked third. Santa Clara St. Louis and Fordham usually fall in the second tier.
Among LACs, College of the Holy Cross is considered to be the best Catholic liberal arts college in the US.
Since I never received a Jesuit education, I am curious ... how do the other 22 Jesuit colleges and universities rank.
University of Scranton appears in those "'hidden gems' in higher education" stories that get published in newspapers and magazines.
In my neck of the woods, John Carroll is becoming increasingly popular among families who send their children to Catholic colleges.
Like I said, I am kinda curious. Any comments would be appreciated.
