The Washington Post says that Money Magazine has gotten it right with its rankings of universities in the country, doing away with such criteria as the percentage of alumni who contribute to their schools (which U.S. News uses as part of its formula). Its rankings are based on 21 factors in three categories: educational quality, affordability, and alumni earnings.

Only 11 Tennessee universities made it in the top 736 colleges in the country. They are:

24. Vanderbilt (Nashville)
209. Tennessee Technological University (Cookeville)
295. (tied) University of Tennessee (Knoxville)
295. (tied) Fisk University (Nashville)
345. Rhodes College (Memphis)
437. University of the South (Sewanee)
458. Union University (Jackson)
546. Lane College (Jackson)
577. Lipscomb University (Nashville)
685. Le Moyne-Owen College (Memphis)
702. Belmont University (Nashville)
