    It completely depends where you look. There are so many league tables out there, and they all seem to have different ways of classifying the results of each institution.

    Generally, each of them will describe the criteria for ranking a school. Certainly some go by research, others by % of students who go on to grad school, etc. I've even seen a ranking of schools by "partying"!
