U.S. News & World Report compiled a list of “A-Plus Schools for B Students,” ranking universities and colleges that “accept a significant number of students with nonstratospheric transcripts.” Each college on the list had to admit a “meaningful proportion” of students who did not make straight A’s. According to the study methodology, that was determined by looking at SAT and ACT scores, as well as the class ranks of admitted students.
