Its evaluative criteria include listing of alumni in “Who’s Who in America” (25 percent); student evaluations of professors from RatemyProfessors (25 percent); four year graduation rates (16 2/3 percent); enrollment adjusted numbers of students and faculty receiving nationally competitive awards (16 2/3 percent); and average four year accumulated student debt of those borrowing money (16 2/3 percent).
