US News has released its list of best colleges for 2022, ranking the colleges around the world and scoring them in various categories. The list is made from the top five countries, according to the US News and World Report, and ranked the top three best colleges from those countries.
The colleges are ranked in various categories like economic, political, social, and quality of life. The media company selected three top colleges from each of the five countries- Sweden, the United States, Canada, Germany, and Switzerland.
This list of college rankings is considered highly important among parents and prospective students who are deciding where to apply. But there are also views from people and major colleges that such rankings penalise schools that value public interest law or accept scholarship recipients. Many top colleges like Harvard, Yale, Georgetown, Duke and the University of Michigan have withdrawn from the list.

Although these rankings are the most influential in the United States, they have been widely denounced by many education experts. They say that they rely on self-reported and sometimes even fraudulent data. Educational experts also argue that these rankings encourage gamesmanship by institutions and they will then provide false precision and data to improve their rankings. 
Yale Law School will no longer participate in the U.S. News annual law school rankings. Despite calls for reform, U.S. News continues to employ flawed metrics that devalue public service work and need-based aid for students from low-income backgrounds. https://t.co/61PQOxeCGm
Recently, Erwin Chemerinsky, the dean of UC Berkeley’s School of Law, recently said that the rankings are based on wrong metrics. He said, “The objection isn’t to the existence of rankings. It is not about wanting to be ranked higher. Yale’s number one. It didn’t withdraw because it wants to be better than number one. This isn’t about wanting a higher ranking. It’s wanting to have rankings that are based on the right metrics.”
