    Summary: 
    The author examines the hype around college rankings, concluding that they are unreliable and deceptive, and provides strategies on how to identify the right school for a particular student, using criteria such as the importance of general education; a commitment to writing, speaking and critical thinking skills; a commitment to active learning; opportunities to extend learning beyond the classroom; and the presence of a diverse, intellectually active and respectful community.
