Top 50 Biggest Reputations

Purpose
By demand, we have analyzed the searches students have run on StudentsReview, and have ranked the schools by the size of their reputation.  The schools with the largest reputations are the most well-known, and whos degree awards will not only be regionally recognized, but nationally and internationally as well.  We caution that reputation does not necessarily imply anything about academics or educational quality, though it is an important factor in valuing the degree from any particular school.

About

Reputation is not determined from student surveys, but by analyzing 2 million searches in our log files, and does not reflect “highly specialized” large reputations (i.e.  engineering or business).  .

Inherently searches are not a complete picture — searchers search primarily for schools they are interested in attending, and secondarily for schools they are curious about (reputation).  We factor this into account in addition to publicity and other freely available external events to act as a metric for public awareness.
