  • Their are ALOT of factors involved in deciding what makes a college "better". So long as they are accredited, it doesn't really matter if their religious or secular based.

  • The top universities seem to be secular.

Is this a joke?
TBR says2015-08-30T03:41:55.1856025Z
You including Jesuit founded schools too? Otherwise it must be a joke.

Which one has more money?
TBR says2015-08-30T03:45:35.6618158Z
Well, aside from the usual, Harvard and Yale, MIT has been raking in the endowments and passed 10 billion not long ago. I insist my son goes to MIT. MIT or bust!

@58539672 - You answer with your vote is nonsense. By almost all metrics better schools produce better results. Better students go to the better universities.

@TBR First off, I never said otherwise. I simply said that the religious affiliation of a school doesn't really matter if the school produces good results. Other factors have a much greater effect on a schools performance than religion. Second, what makes a school "better" than another school? This question is largely subjective based off what your planning on getting out of the college. If you're an athlete, then a college with a good sports team will seem better to you. If you are a nursing major, then a school with a good nursing program will be better. Even an affordable school, for those who aren't economically well of, is better than an expensive one. "Better" is subjective. Third, I just wanted notifications. I really don't care which side of the poll my response is on.

It generally depends on the college, because you have both secular and religious schools typically in the top 100 lists for the country. I voted secular, because the Ivy League and many other top schools in the US and the world are secular. The university I started this year is Christian, but I picked it because of the great ranking of its business school. I did attend a secular, private high school. So, as @58539672 suggested, I was paying attention to the quality of education the school offered, not its status as secular or religious.

@Huntress - Was the christina school you are speaking of founded by Jesuits? I think I would break-off an entirely new classification for them
Huntress says2015-08-30T21:30:07.3981361Z
I agree about the Jesuit schools. Catholic schools do well in rankings for secondary education too. Mine is Methodist though. A lot of people might not know it, but MIT also has what's probably the top business school in the country. MIT is a great school no matter what you're planning to major in, whereas with a different career goal I'd be at another school.

MIT! MIT! Yes, my son is 5, but he will be going there, or out on the street. UCSB can be a backup, I guess...

I am a professor, and I confess that all colleges these days in the USA are bad. For example, today hundreds of universities in the USA are in the middle of sex scandals for botching sexual violence cases.
