share this story
Are you a brainiac? Don't be shy, it is not a bad thing.
The Daily Beast recently compiled their list of the "most brainiac colleges."
How did they calculate this? The Beast has more:
To find the schools where brainiacs flock and flourish, Newsweek/The Daily Beast weighted each of the following equally, using z-scores (how close or distant each school is to the average within each category): number of Rhodes scholars, all time; number of Marshall Scholarship winners, all time; number of Gates-Cambridge Scholarship winners since 2001; number of Truman Scholarship winners, all time; and the number of Fulbright Student Program awardees since 1993.
What do you think of this list? Agree or disagree? Weigh in below!
