For over 20 years, I’ve analyzed the many lists and surveys* about the Top Universities in the United States and the World. It was incredibly important for me to spend this time finally because the landscape is confusing. As you can see from the listing in Wikipedia on College Rankings, there are 19 different rankings they list right away. If you examine the Regional and National rankings, there are many separate articles that elaborate on how individual nations evaluate higher institutions of education. While the publication lists their methodology very clearly on their website, do you ever wonder if their location in New York city has anything to do with the fact that all 6 of these Top Universities are in the East Coast?
Also, if you look at the following wired magazine article which analyzes all the universities where Google employs its staff, you can see that it is definitely not Princeton.
In 2003 through approximately 2006, I was the #2 sales person in a Real Estate office in Bellevue, Washington. Many people don’t realize that it’s not just what our parents or what our friends think are the top institutions of higher learning (unless they are heads of venture capital firms or managers of human resource teams). So, the above list that identifies the German University should be taken seriously despite the lack of awareness of the institution listed at #10. Well, the Wall Street Journal published an article in 2010 asking which schools were the best according to HR recruiters.

Another reason why it’s important for me to share this knowledge is because I am also a parent of two future college graduates. As stated earlier, it is critical for a company human resources recruiter or manager to recognize your university.
If your child was to work in North Carolina after college and then want to go and work in possibly Sweden for a few years, what University should she choose? The Times Higher Education World Reputation Rankings 2015 employ the world’s largest invitation-only academic opinion survey to provide the definitive list of the top 100 most powerful global university brands. The other 4 on the list are obviously not pushovers for Universities, but again, the Top 4 outrank the University that is the hardest to get in (as far as the USA is concerned) and the one that significantly helped in producing what we all use to even find information about University rankings. What if my child was not destined to be one of the chosen 5% of Stanford or the other small percentage selected at the other top 4 institutions? Here are a golden 40 on top of the Prestigious 5 presented earlier (Harvard, Oxford, Cambridge, MIT & Stanford). For example, in many rankings lists, the University of Washington is not as visible as top ones like Harvard or even Northwestern.
The other universities in the above list provide very similar value in their regions and throughout the world.
Why did Bill Gates become the richest person in the entire world (and stay there for many of the past 20+ years)?

Harvard, Yale and the many others we’ve listed above have incredible alumni networks. Apparently adding a few Harvard students to a team raises its average intelligence and makes it more effective at solving problems. That, the employers feel, is more valuable than specific knowledge, which smart people can pick up quickly in any case. He worked with the same team to repeat their title as #1 at the following Global Round with over 2000 participants. Without being able to meet some of the brightest minds in the various education settings he had been connected to, he would most likely have found worst team members and possibly even failed. In terms of Test Preparation, Brandon has helped students achieve a perfect 2400 on the SAT and a plethora of 2300+’s.
On the ACT, he’s helped students reach the 99% Percentile and 99%+ Percentile regularly with perfect 36‘s on the Reading and Essay sections. With regards to the SSAT, his students have regularly achieved 95%+ percentiles with 3 former students obtaining the top score possible – in the 99% Percentile.
