UMBC is One of the Nation’s Most Underrated Schools
Hooray (once again!) for the University of Maryland Baltimore County, a school that just keeps racking up the accolades from the national press. This time, the praise comes from Business Insider, which just named UMBC the seventh-most underrated college in America.
Some caveats are in order, as always: the BI ranking measured schools’ US News & World Report academic ranking along with PayScale’s estimate of mid-career salaries in order to identify relatively low-ranking schools with relatively high-earning graduates. Unsurprisingly, the bulk of the list is made up of lesser-known state and tech schools, with the University of Massachusettes-Lowell, the Polytechnic Institute of New York University, and the New Jersey Institute of Technology taking the top three spots.
