This list of Philly's Top Universities and Graduate Schools should not be considered comprehensive. It is merely meant to highlight some of the best ranked schools in and around the city, according to U.S. News and World Report's 2013 survey of 1,600 schools. For instance, Delaware Valley College and West Chester University ranked 20th and 70th among regional undergraduate colleges, but were considered too far away to make this list. A new graduate school survey
will be published by the magazine March 12.
