I have an older US News College guide (3or 4 years) and then Stonehill was number 1 in Baccalaureate with great numbers. When they moved to Liberal Arts catagory, they dropped, obviously in a much larger group, and weren't judged the same, although the school really hadn't changed.
Can the admission rep explain why the switch, was it Saint Joe's choice or does US News do that on their own? (I've heard both)
That said, I don't put them in very high regard, but it shows how ratings can vary, and not always be easy to understand.
