Every year, U.S. News and World Report ranks institutions of higher learning across America, and sometimes, there is more to a school’s ranking than just one number.

That’s what U.S. News found when it compared their overall rankings of schools against their rankings in a category that counts for 15 percent of each school’s total score: academic peer assessment, a measure of a school’s reputation among presidents, provosts and deans of admissions at a school’s peer institutions. The findings focus on national universities — schools that offer full ranges of academic majors, programs and research. The publication found that sometimes a school’s overall ranking does not match its reputation, showing that it might be overrated or underrated by its peers.
