Depends on what your definition of "valuable" is but you already knew that with this statementIs a UC undergraduate degree all that valuable though?
Nice tool! Thanks for sharing!Depends on what your definition of "valuable" is but you already knew that with this statement
According to Georgetown (you can assign your own "value" to their study/data/institution/etc), the 30 year NPV rank of 5 or 6 of the UC schools is in the top 200 of the 4500 colleges/universities ranked.
A First Try at ROI: Ranking 4,500 Colleges - CEW GeorgetownRanking ROI Of 4,500 US Colleges And Universities uses data from the expanded College Scorecard and finds that bachelor’s degrees from private colleges, on average, have higher ROI than degrees from public colleges 40 years after enrollment. It also explores the value of liberal arts colleges...cew.georgetown.edu
According to Georgetown's 40-year NPV ranking, the top UC is Berkeley which ranks just slightly above the lowest Ivy which is Brown. So I guess you're right. It's next best, but that's like saying the Clippers are the next best team in LA.UC is the next best thing to Ivy.
Hasn’t it always been Ivy or bust? Oh wait… wrong forum. It’s the opposite here. Ivies SUCK.The surprising thing I learned from this tool is that 2-year nursing school is your best bet if you're not Ivy or CalTech material.
There are six nursing schools that beat UC Berkeley and nine that beat UCLA.
What about U. Chicago, Northwestern, Rice University, Washington St. Louis, Johns Hopkins, Swarthmore, Amherst, Williams, Pomona College, Caltech, MIT, Harvey Mudd?UC is the next best thing to Ivy.
I would argue that MIT and CalTech are better than most Ivy, especially MIT, which consistently ranks in top 3 along with Harvard and Stanford.What about U. Chicago, Northwestern, Rice University, Washington St. Louis, Johns Hopkins, Swarthmore, Amherst, Williams, Pomona College, Caltech, MIT, Harvey Mudd?
What sets them apart is they don’t do affirmative action.CalTech is in a league of it's own - they never waived test score reqs
