BYU Ranks Ahead of All Utah Universities in National Report

Best in Utah…

Each year high school students apply for college, and even college students look to transfer to a university. What’s the best school in Utah to apply to? Well, a new report from WalletHub ranked the best colleges and universities across the country based on a number of factors, including student selectivity, cost, and financing as well as career outcomes.

Here’s how the local Universities ranked nationwide:

  1. Brigham Young University-Provo (57th overall)

  2. University of Utah (146th overall)

  3. Utah State University (492nd overall)

The Deseret News got an even better breakdown of each school from a WalletHub email. BYU had the best admission rate out of all Utah schools, as well as the top graduate rate and post-attendance median salary. The U of U had the best student-to-faculty ratio and the greatest amount of gender and racial diversity among Utah colleges or universities. Finally, Utah State had the highest net cost and the least amount of on-campus crime among Utah colleges and universities. But the school had the lowest admission rate compared to the Utah schools.

If you don’t agree with the results (above) the 2019 rankings from U.S. News and World Report did their own rankings. BYU was ranked at 66th and the U of U came in 119th.
