Danny Licht is only seventeen years old. And this article he wrote is one of the most articulate, compelling arguments I’ve ever read about ignoring college rankings and finding the right college for you. My favorite part:
"The Best College in America does not exist. It's a myth. It would be too easy. Sure, it might be Stanford, as Forbes insists, but Forbes is only guessing. Consider the primary sources — then ask yourself, not Forbes. Forbes doesn't know the best college for you. Google doesn't know. U.S. News & World Report (is that even a real thing?) doesn't know. When you come across posts with titles like this one, remember that you're a person, and that I'm a different person, and that the answer lies only with you."
