When trying to select a college, school Web sites, guidebooks, and rankings, while valuable, will only get you so far. The fact is, the only people who can tell you what a school is really like are the students themselves.
That's why BusinessWeek partnered with College Prowler, which surveys college students throughout the U.S. and uses those surveys to grade each school on everything from academics to nightlife to off-campus housing.
We asked College Prowler to provide ratings in 20 different categories for the schools that are home to our top 50 undergraduate business programs, and to give us a sampling of what students were saying about their schools. If you like what you see, use the links on each slide to learn more about the school's business program.
Note: The College Prowler letter grades on the slides that follow are mostly self-explanatory, with high grades indicating either high quality or a high degree of campus activity. One exception is "drug scene," where a high grade indicates drugs are not a noticeable part of campus life. For additional information on the grades visit College Prowler.
