Washington Monthly ranks schools based not on how selective they are, how rich they are, or how much money graduates make, but on whose students, in the magazine's words:

"... asks not what colleges can do for you, but what colleges are doing for the country. Are they educating low-income students, or just catering to the affluent? Are they improving the quality of their teaching, or ducking accountability for it? Are they trying to become more productive—and if so, why is average tuition rising faster than health care costs?... "

Washington Monthly | College Guide 2014

Take a look at their rankings and maybe it will help.

It's amusing to find a ranking where NC A&T finishes higher than Columbia, Yale, and Cal Tech, and where UTEP outscores Harvard, Princeton, Yale, and Chicago.

The answer to this question depends on what you mean by it. What is the deepest thinker? Does that mean someone must think in liberal social terms to be a deep thinker? How about if they think about physics? Or biology? Or finance?

For empathy are you looking for schools that espouse the most liberal philosophy? Or the ones who protest the most loudly for the most politically correct causes? Or the one where the students simply and quietly just go out and do?

What is the answer you are looking for?
