Here is the Matriculationstats Top 25 across all private schools based on our favorite metric, the MATRIC TOP Index. This index is a weighted average of a school’s matriculations to colleges and universities listed in the top 25 US News & World Report list of National Universities and top 15 of their Liberal Arts Colleges. Our methodology is described in more detail on the home page. Please also see the blog entry describing why we are now presenting this list.

It is possiible that we are excluding schools which should otherwise be on this list due to unavailability of appropriate data or our simply being unaware of the school. Please let us know of any schools that should be evaluated for possible inclusion on this list.
