Newsweek totally wants us.

Typical Brown student.

Typical Brown student?

The news magazine just released a list of the “most desirable” American universities, and Brown ranks at number 10. We’re also #9 on the list of schools for “brainiacs”, which is based on some weird calculus involving our number of Nobel Prize winners (1) and acceptance rate (14%.)

Brown was also praised as diverse (#2, just behind Penn) and gay friendly (#14).

One list we didn’t make? 25 Great Schools with Great Weather. Way to be temperature-and-precipitation normative, Newsweek.

    Hmm, seems like these rankings are a bit outdated — isn’t our acceptance rate closer to 9-11% now? The methodology they use to determine their lists is never really clear anyway.
