Of course, there are always going to be schools that are acknowledged as being the best of the best. Usually, they have a long, proud history of being distinguished as one of the greatest schools in the USA. Many of these schools have been around for a long time, like Yale and Harvard. However, there are some new kids on the block who might be able to give the old-timers a run for their money.
U.S. News recently announced their Top Schools in the USA. There were several subcategories this year, and one of these subcategories was the best up-and-coming schools, aka the new kids on the block. These schools were nominated by their peers because they are seen as making the most promising or innovative changes in areas such as student life, academics, and faculty.
