New England is home to some of the most selective and prestigious colleges and universities in the world. My list of the 25 top New England colleges is filled with many familiar names -- Harvard, Yale, Williams, Amherst, and many others. A couple of the schools may be less familiar to readers. The colleges and universities on the list were chosen based on retention rates, four- and six-year graduation rates, student engagement, academic strengths, and financial aid.
