These Are The Top Colleges In 2014, According To Forbes

Everybody loves a good ol' college ranking.

On Wednesday, Forbes released a list of the best colleges in America in 2014. But Forbes emphasizes what sets their ranking apart is a "firm belief in 'output' over 'input.'

"We're not all that interested in what gets a student into college," Forbes explained. "Our sights are set directly on ROI: What are students getting out of college."

Forbes calculated their rankings working with the Center for College Affordability and Productivity.

The above video and list below summarizes the top 10 colleges, but the full article -- including the methodology of the rankings -- can be found here. Forbes' top public colleges are here and the best value colleges are here.
