Only 11th? It used to be in the top 10.

Nearly all of the top 50 best colleges in the country are private. The UC system is the exception.

As far as graduate schools, publics do quite well and UC is a star.

These were the best value, not necessarily the best (no ivys on the list). But a great accomplishment nontheless.

The OP was refering to public colleges.

The goal of public colleges are different than private schools, and therefore will have a disadvantage in rankings. Besides, it's not the undergrad school that is important, but the professional/graduate program that counts.
