Naval Academy ranked 9th in student preference

2015 Naval Academy Commissioning Ceremony

The Naval Academy jumped 17 places from last year to finish ninth among
colleges most preferred by college-bound students, according to rankings
released last week by the Scottsdale, Arizona-based company Parchment.
The company serves as an online registrar allowing students to send and
receive transcripts and diplomas. Parchment tracked the preferences of
more than 86,400 students for the rankings.
The Naval Academy finished behind the United States Military Academy
at West Point at sixth and Stanford University, which was first. The
Naval Academy finished 26th last year.
The company ranks the
colleges by awarding points based in preferences. A student may be
accepted to three colleges. He or she may will pick one to attend. That
college receives points. The other two colleges are deducted points.
More than 700 colleges and universities were compared this way, according to the company.
Similarly, the Naval Academy jumped four places from 2014 to tie at
ninth in the ranking of the best liberal arts colleges by U.S. News
& World Report. That ranking was released last week.
