    Clearly nonsense. Everyone knows that Cambridge is better than Oxford for math ;)

    Courant Institute at NYU is world class..... Does anyone know if its admission to Math is more rigorous than its general admission?

    I'm so impressed that Stony Brook-- a SUNY school-- made that list!

    James Simons, an MIT PhD grad who taught at Stony Brook before becoming a multi-billionaire, had and still has a huge impact on making Stony Brook’s math department as strong as it is.

    It makes me laugh that their captions have nothing to do with math. They should say why this school is s great choice for math majors, not that Matthew McConaughey attended.

    The Princeton Review suggests colleges for math in its sampling "Great Schools for Mathematics Majors" (Harvey Mudd, MIT, UChicago, Caltech, Haverford, Harvard, Hamilton, Bowdoin, Reed, Rice, Carleton, St. Olaf . . .). These schools generally represent excellent options for students interested in choosing an undergraduate college that is strong in math.
