    I think people need to realize that it’s hard for them to choose 10 schools to compare since comparing a school like Berkeley is completely different to a school like Amherst. Both great schools, but size and variety of major make them super different. There are so many colleges that deserve to be on this list, and honestly there should just be a video titled TOP 10 PUBLIC SCHOOLS and TOP 10 LIBERAL ART SCHOOLS or PRIVATE SCHOOLS to compare schools on a more equal level.

    Actually, MIT was featured in Captain America: Civil War and not in Avengers Age of Ultron as stated in the video.

    I got into Northwestern and this video really warms my heart since a lot of people in my country don’t really understand how great it is. Failed to get into Stanford btw. I am not really into advertising but this channel helped me a lot in my application/decision process. Thank you and your team!!!

    How can you rank MIT 9 and Caltech 2? Why are you basing your ranking so highly on selectivity? That metric is so less telling than career success. MIT should at least be ranked in top 3, especially because it is ranked the top university in the world by QS.

    At the start of this freshman year in high school I set one goal in my mind. I am going to Stanford and nobody can stop me. Come back to this comment in 4 years.

    Not surprised UCLA didn't make it ..... but I'm surprised Michigan DID and UCLA didn't. Must be an anti-double UC choice. Also, Rice U probably deserves a shout out as it's really good at what it does in its niche being tied for #3 in undergrad teaching with Brown. (Given that USNWR is strongly pro-Ivy biased w schools like Penn, Columbia, and Yale often being overrated vis-a-vis MIT, Caltech, and Stanford, this probably means that it is better.) However, I'm pro-Rice, pro-UCLA biased for personal reasons. I'm just surprised that I got double rejected. No love for the warm weather schools.
