UI, WSU Do Poorly In Forbes List

Washington State University and the University of Idaho were ranked among the worst colleges in their respective states on the Forbes' 2014 list of best colleges nationwide -- behind institutions such as Brigham Young University-Idaho and Whitman College. WSU was ranked No. 370 nationwide and last among the 10 schools listed in Washington, while the UI Moscow campus was ranked 456th overall and third in Idaho. The University of Washington was ranked second in Washington and No. 73 overall, and Boise State University was ranked fifth in Idaho and No. 636 overall. The list includes 650 colleges and universities across the country and ranks them on five categories: student satisfaction, post-graduate success, graduation rate, student debt and academic success/Samantha Malott, Moscow-Pullman Daily News.

Question: Does this listing prompt you to look somewhere else to send your graduating children?
