AFA ranks in top ten for second time

In its second accolade of the week, the Air Force Academy is ranked as one of the top 10 universities in the nation, according to Forbes.

Forbes released its best colleges ranking Wednesday, ranking the academy as the tenth best. The magazine ranked Williams College in Massachusetts at the top, followed by Princeton, the U.S. Military Academy, Amherst, Stanford, Harvard, Haverford College, the University of Chicago and MIT.

The rankings are calculated by Forbes and the Center for College Affordability and Productivity and are based on a numerical formula which assesses schools based on post-graduate success, student satisfaction, student debt, four-year graduation rates and competitive awards.

This is the second set of college ranking this week that ranked the academy in the top ten. Earlier, the Princeton Review ranked the academy fifth in their “most accessible professors” category.
