Schools in Category: Ivy League
The Ivy League, originally designated as an athletic conference for eight northeastern universities, has come to signify eight of the most competitive colleges in the country. Consisting of Harvard, Yale, Brown, Columbia, Dartmouth, Cornell, Princeton, and UPenn, the Ivy League’s connotation is that of excellence in academia and selectivity in admissions. All schools in the Ivy League place within the top 15 in U.S. News and World Report‘s annual ranking of national universities. Each of the schools’ undergraduate enrollment falls somewhere between 4,000 and 14,000, making the schools larger than traditional liberal arts colleges, but smaller than most large state schools.
