“U.S. News and World Report” released Tuesday it’s “2017 Best College Rankings.”
The ranking compared more than 1,800 U.S.-based colleges and included UC Berkeley as the highest ranking Top Public School among National Universities. UCLA ranked second on the same list, with UC Irvine not far behind at #8.

Larry speaks today with a critic and supporter of the list to find out what students need to know before consulting the new college rankings.
