Lists like these can be highly subjective. What's important to one person, may be of no interest to someone else.
Some of the considerations when choosing a college, may include the majors that are offered, student/teacher ratio, location, graduation rate, sports, social opportunities, and cost.
Here in New Jersey, we have quite a few high-quality 4-year colleges to choose from. Some of the public options include Stockton University, The College of New Jersey, Montclair State University, Rutgers University, and others. When it comes to private schools, Seton Hall University, Rider University, and Princeton University are all good schools close to home.
Only one of these New Jersey schools made the collegeraptor.com list of the top 50 colleges in the country.
Princeton University has the longest history of any college in the country. It was founded in 1746 as The College of New Jersey. It has a reputation of being difficult to get into, and that reputation is proven correct. Its admissions rate is approximately 5.6%.
Some of the other schools that made the top 50 include, Duke, Notre Dame, Swarthmore, and Colgate.
