New Ivies


The nation's elite colleges these days include more than Harvard, Yale and Princeton. Why? It's the tough competition for all the top students. That means a range of schools are getting fresh bragging rights.
A generation ago, elite schools were a clearly defined group: the eight schools in the Ivy League, along with such academic power houses as Stanford, the University of Chicago, MIT and Caltech. Smaller liberal-arts colleges - like Williams, Amherst, Middlebury, Swarthmore and Wesleyan - were the destinations of choice for top students who preferred a more intimate campus. But in the past few decades, the number of college-bound students has skyrocketed, and so has the number of world-class schools. The demand for an excellent education has created an ever-expanding supply of big and small campuses that provide great academics and first-rate faculties. The bottom line : that one "perfect" school need not break a student's heart. The colleges on the following list - the "New Ivies" - are beneficiaries of the boom in top students. We selected them based on admissions statistics as well as interviews with administrators, faculty, students and alumni.
