    GradReports just released the Top 100 Colleges by Student Choice; a ranking of the most desired schools in the country. Unlike most conventional rankings, the Top 100 Colleges by Student Choice was generated based on objective, trusted data: it considers the acceptance rate as well as the enrollment rate for every school in the United States. The new rankings on GradReports aim to showcase schools that students are actually choosing, not just the institutions with the lowest acceptance rate.
