US News - Rutgers Ranked 60 (Should be ranked higher)
OVERALL UNDERGRADUATE RANKING - Rutgers from what I've recently heard did not change position on the US News ranking from 2006 to 2007. It remains 60. However, do keep in mind that many of the programs at Rutgers such as Philosophy, History, Political Science, Biological Sciences, Physical Sciences etc etc are all ranked very high even in comparison to many "higher ranked" schools. Unfortunately, US News bases 25 perent of their "rankings" on peer review and another percentage on "endowment". Explains part of the reason why some of the top schools never ever change.
