The five sites are Cappex.com, MyPlan.com, Niche.com, StudentsReview.com, and Unigo.com.

“Similar to what Rotten Tomatoes does for movies,” explained College Consensus founder Jeremy Alder, “College Consensus gathers the publisher rankings and student reviews from around the web and distills the results into simple, easy to understand scores so students can quickly and easily compare schools.”

The ranking site says New York has one of the nation’s best-educated populaces and a system of higher education that includes the Ivy League, nationally-renowned public universities, and some of the most prestigious private liberal arts colleges in the U.S.

St. Lawrence came in at number 13 in its ranking of the top 25 colleges across New York State.

The site says that St. Lawrence “stays with the most important tradition of the liberal arts college – excellent faculty,” with nearly all of full-time faculty (98 percent) holding the highest degree in their field. St. Lawrence students also enjoy an 11 to 1 student/faculty ratio.
