AIER's College Destinations Tool      
This calculator lets you decide what factors in AIER's College Destination Index are most important to you. 
It shows the top ten highest-rated metropolitan areas in each of four size categories based on your choices.
For each characteristic, please choose a value from "1 - Not Important" to "5 - Most Important" by using the dropdown boxes provided in the shaded cells. As you change the values, the list will automatically update to reflect your new priorities. 
The default rankings reflect an equal weighting of these factors.
Please follow the links for more information about each of your chosen cities.
More details can be found in our research brief "Best College Destinations".
