Of course you can't base your choice entirely on rankings, but it's no coincidence that Princeton is the #1 school according to U.S. News & Rankings. Here, the focus is on undergraduates, while at other Ivy League schools, such as Harvard and Yale, more emphasis is placed on graduate students. The engineering department is unparalleled. Professors are collaborative, approachable and most importantly, caring. No where else do undergraduate students have the privilege of working side-by-side with Nobel Laureates and field experts. The camps is beautiful, the food is good (no rave reviews here), and the dorms are like palaces. There is so much pride at Princeton; I can look around the campus and know that everyone here truly wants to be here. Financial Aid is excellent. Basically, if you're qualified, Princeton will find a way to pay for you. The administration runs smoothly.

With demanding school work, tons of extra curricular activities, and a tremendous sense of community at the school, it's easy to not leave campus for weeks at a time. Students tend to forget that NYC is just as hour away. If you tire of eating clubs, you can always escape to NYC for the weekend.

It's a wonderful school. Best in the nation.
