Are Yale grads the happiest and most successful in the nation? No, but we’re close — a new list out from AlumniFactor.com, a site claiming to be the first to rank colleges solely based on alumni feedback, has Yale as the second-best university in the nation.
The best part: Harvard isn’t number one. That honor belongs to Washington and Lee, a private liberal arts college in Virginia.
In fact, Harvard didn’t even crack the top 10: it came in at 37. Rounding out the top five after Washington and Lee and Yale are Princeton, Rice University in Houston, and the College of the Holy Cross.
