INSIDE HONORS also has much more information about merit scholarships than the 2014 edition included. Since 2012, we have either ranked or rated 84 public university honors colleges or programs. (Of the 84 programs, 28 have been ranked or rated in all three editions.) After the 2012 edition, we began using ratings instead of rankings. It is not that our present methodology could not be used to rank programs–in fact, it is more in-depth than that used by other college rankings and ratings, given that its focus is on a relatively small number of programs.
