Boston University jumps two spots to 37th best university in America

We’ll beat BC next time.

As if we needed reminding how great Boston University is, we have officially been declared as the 37th best university in America.

US News and World Report has just released their annual ranking of American colleges, placing up us in the top 40. The list includes the best 300 schools.

Last year we were ranked 39th, meaning we jumped 2 places on the ranking, a personal best for the university.

We beat Northeastern University who came in at #40, but fell just underneath Boston College who came in at #32.

Coming as no surprise, Princeton, Harvard and UChicago all took the top three spots, again.

US News base their rankings on graduate outcomes (year-by-year completion and graduation rates), the number of students receiving Pell Grants, faculty resources, student satisfaction, financial resources, expert opinion, student excellence and alumni giving.

Additionally, BU's undergraduate programs for engineering went up 4 ranks from last year's #49.

They can say it all they want, but it really doesn't suck to BU.
