Baruch Ranks #36 Among
Top "104 Smartest Public Colleges in America"

 

With an average SAT score of 1230, Baruch College is ranked #162, leading the charge for all other CUNY schools that were included in the “600 Smartest Colleges in America” by Business Insider. Baruch is also ranked #36 among the "104 Smartest Public Colleges in America."

Other CUNY schools in the "600 Smartest" ranking include Hunter College #248 (1170 average SAT score); Queens College #352 (1125 average SAT score); and Brooklyn College #534 (1075 average SAT score).

Other CUNY schools in the "104 Smartest" ranking include Hunter College #65 (1170 average SAT score); and Queens College #100 (1125 average SAT score).

Exclusively for Business InsiderJonathan Wai, a Duke University Talent Identification Program researcher, calculated a ranking of America's colleges and universities based purely on smarts, as reflected by the school's average scores on standardized tests. Business Insider updated its ranking from last year by including all the schools in the national university, liberal arts college, regional university, and regional college lists that reported SAT or ACT scores in the latest U.S. News ranking.

Methodology: ACT scores were translated into SAT scores (math and verbal) using this concordance table so that all schools could be compared using one metric. An average of the 25th and 75th percentile was computed. This resulted in a total of 1,339 schools analyzed.
