Perhaps one measure of "contentment factor" is freshman retention rate. If you like it, you're likely to stay. If you don't, you're more likely to drop out or transfer. Although 1% difference isn't much, this is the USNWR ranking:
Freshman Retention Rate:
99% - Pomona.
98% - Bowdoin, Princeton, Yale, Stanford, MIT, Penn, Columbia, Notre Dame.
97% - Williams, Amherst, Carleton, Harvard, Duke, Dartmouth, WUStL, Northwestern, Brown, Berkeley, Georgetown, UVa, UCLA
<97% - Everybody else.
