Must have been an oversight to exclude St John's :P

#9 on the list is the one in California, not NY. They just announced earlier this week that they are opening a second campus in Massachusetts. This school is the little engine that could, of colleges. I am so impressed. Classical education. Critical thinking. Low tuition R&B with great financial aid and and without a huge endowment or Federal Funds is in way better shape financially than other Catholic schools and the graduates leave with a lower level of debt than other schools. It ranks nationally in many categories even ahead of most of the Ivy's in relevant categories. The kind of base formation education that Catholic schools used to provide - without the ruler slaps on the knuckles. Not the impressive brand name degree or vocational focus (Liberal Arts degree) but the graduates are exceptionally prepared for critical thinking and have high acceptance rates at grad schools, law schools and medical schools.

Chuck Norris once fought superman. The loser had to wear his underwear over his pants.

Holy Cross over Boston College. The debate continues. I think it needs its own subject ;)

Gonzaga has to be the greatest example of the Flutie effect in modern sports history, because No way pre 1999 they make this list. Kudos to the Gonzaga administration for capitalizing on their Basketball success and turning it around for the whole university.

Notable absences on the USA Today list include: Marquette, University of San Diego (Jesuit) , Xavier and Fordham, to name but a few.

Zaga average SAT 1200 for class enetering in 2015 according to U.S. News

73% acceptance rate.

4 year enrollment a bit over 5K

Other Catholic schools ranked in West region include Portland (#7) and Seattle (#8)

Paul's analysis of Thomas Aquinas describes Holy Cross which is #2 for the second year in a row.

However, this list omits Fordham and includes Providence in the top 10, so I am skeptical of how it was put together. Some of these schools are not really top 10 schools.

Providence has a better basketball team than Fordham
