WEST POINT, N.Y. (Aug. 11, 2010) -- A report released by The Princeton Review ranked West Point in its "top 10" in seven categories and "top 20" in six others, including No. 4 in "Most Accessible Professors" and "Best Classroom Experience" in their annual college guide "The Best 373 Colleges."
West Point was ranked No. 10 in "Best College Library," No. 11 in "Everyone Plays Intramural Sports" and No. 13 in "Class Discussions Encouraged."
The new 2011 edition profiles only about 15 percent of America's 2,500 four-year colleges and two Canadian colleges.
The Princeton Review does not rank the colleges in the book academically or from 1 to 373 in any category. Instead it reports in the book 62 ranking lists of "top 20" colleges in various categories.
The lists are entirely based on The Princeton Review's survey of 122,000 students (about 325 per campus on average) attending the colleges in the book and not on The Princeton Review's opinion of the schools.
The 80-question survey asks students to rate their own schools on several topics and report on their campus experiences at them.
