True, in the end, we awarded the Most Annoying Liberal Arts College crown to Wesleyan, in no small part because we had it on good authority that Sarah Lawrence was trying to rig the voting. The nerve. But there's another ranking that they want no part of: the US News annual list of the country's best colleges. Since the school doesn't even accept SAT or ACT scores (apparently the other schools that don't require them will look at them if you submit them), US News decided to place them in a special "unranked" category. This will undoubtedly lead to all sorts of self-congratulatory back-thumping. Maybe even a T-shirt! Wesleyan, we are sorry to say that Sarah Lawrence seems to be nipping at your heels. Quick, throw a naked party or something!
