We're not talking best. We're not talking brightest. We're talking most desired. After comparing the New York Times' list of 2010-2011 application increases, Collegeprowler.com's "Top Colleges" list (which includes student rankings of academics, the student body, nightlife and campus facilities), Princeton Review's 2010 list of the "Happiest Colleges" and the "New Ivies" lists from Newsweek and unigo.com, we put together a group of schools that, as of 2011, are doing something right.
With drastic application increases and soaring student reviews, we give you 2011's TRENDIEST COLLEGES.
