The latest results from the highest respected college ranking systems have been combined with thousands of reviews by real students to compile a unique new college meta-ranking system. The subsequent report titled “Best Colleges in Texas” has been published by College Consensus. The compilation of data consists of 2017-2018 results which, according to the organization’s founder Jeremy Alder, is “Like [what] Rotten Tomatoes or Metacritic does for movies…” It gathers student reviews together with publisher rankings from across the web and merges the results into scores which are simple and easy to understand. Students can then very easily and quickly compare schools. According to Alder, “It is the ranking of all rankings, so to speak.”

A well-rooted and long-established leader in post-secondary education, the state of Texas has six public university systems and a number of highly prestigious private liberal arts colleges, technical institutes, and religious colleges. Agriculture and livestock and mining and petroleum programs have made the Lone Star State universities and colleges some of the most sought after for degrees in these fields, making Texas a national leader in such degrees. The state’s strength in the engineering field since the late 20th century have made Texas a major destination for professionals and tech companies rivaling the Pacific Northwest and California.
