Haverford Versus Stanford

Forbes magazine, fearless about list-making, has a new college ranking.

Unlike U.S. News and World Report, Forbes groups the big universities together with the small colleges.

The result? Haverford (pictured) ranks 22nd. One notch above Stanford.

Both schools were well below such esteemed institutions as Wabash College (No. 12) and Kentucky's Centre College (No. 13).

University of Pennsylvania doesn't pop up until No. 61. Berkeley checks in at No. 73, and Emory was No. 82. Ouch.
