Really? Only 2 Colleges In Texas Made The WSJ Best Of List?
The Wall Street Journal, (WSJ), just released their annual college rankings and Texas didn't have a very good showing.
Texas has 410 colleges, 248 fewer than California, the state with the most, (658), colleges.
Out of all those colleges spread across the lone star state, only 2 of them made the WSJ top 100 this time around.
The Wall Street Journal peeps used several different factors to come up with their list including expected student salaries, facilities and student diversity.
The WSJ "best of" list doesn't stop at the top 100, it actually ranks the top 400 colleges in the United States of America.
Outside of the top 100, several other Texas colleges also made the cut.
Twenty Texas colleges and universities in total made the top 400, including Houston's University of St. Thomas at No. 158 and Texas Woman's University at 204. Huntsville's Sam Houston State University also made the ranking, coming in at No. 206, with the University of Houston two spots behind at No. 208 and the University of Houston - Downtown at No. 224. Waco's Baylor University also cracked the top 400 with a 331 ranking. - CHRON
