About this College Ranking

StudentsReview's Criteria for the Best All Around Education is:

35% - Social Life
20% - Extra-Curiculars
15% - Surrounding City
15% - Safety
10% - Individual Value
5% - Would Return

What makes a good social life is ALWAYS under debate, but it is worth noting that it is always relative to the students who would choose to attend.  What constitutes a good social life in Southern California is entirely different than in Houston, Texas, or in Pensacola, Florida. 
But what we have established are some components that we believe to be important no matter where you are:

Social 
Social life is always relative to the students who would choose to attend, so it is entirely possible that a school without “parties every night” will be ranked well, becuase its students might not be interested in that.

Extra-Curriculars 
The extracurriculars are both of good quality and easy to become involved in.

Surrounding City 
Part of a good social life is having somewhere to “get-away” to, to expand experiences and culture.

Safety 
Safety is very important — whether it is crime, drugs, burglaries, it is difficult to socially involved when always looking over your shoulder.

Individual Value 
People want to be treated like people, not like numbers; the less individually valuable people are treated, the more inclined they are to become depressed and withdraw into themselves.

Would Return (Overall Experience) 
All things stated, would the students choose to return?  This blanket captures things that all of our ratings did not, or could not capture.  Is there some unknown factor affecting why students would not return?
