The University of Scranton placed at No. 73 among some of the most elite colleges in the nation in a new ranking that combines an average score from national “best college” guidebooks with an average score based on student reviews posted online. The 2017-18 ranking, published online by College Consensus, a college ranking and review aggregator, also listed the top 10 schools in each state. Scranton ranked No. 7 in Pennsylvania.

For the ranking, College Consensus calculated an “average rating score” for colleges based on national guidebook rankings, which include U.S. News & World Report, Forbes, Times Higher Education, Washington Monthly and others. College Consensus also calculated an “overall score” for colleges based on student reviews posted on multiple sites, including Niche.com. The “consensus ranking” combined both these scores.
