Forbes/CCAP Best Northeastern Schools

By Luke Myers

The northeast is arguably the best region for quality higher education in the country. The top 25 schools in the region are all in the top 40 nation-wide and 41 schools in the top 100 schools of the country are located in the northeast. This high quality generally comes with a high cost, however. Only twelve northeastern colleges are in the top 100 Best Buy list, and other than the U.S. Military Academy, no school in the northeast is in the top 100 of both lists. The 25 best northeastern schools are all private except for West Point, but public schools make a better showing in terms of value, where they constitute two-thirds of the top 25 Best Buys in the region.

An overwhelming number of the nation’s most premiere institutions, when judging based on undergraduate student preferences and outcomes, reside in the northeast. Seven of the top ten and 14 of the top 20 schools in the nation are in this region. The Boston area is the northeast’s work horse, with one fifth of the top 25 schools in the region being located in or around the city.

Unlike other regions, many of the very best schools in the northeast are research universities. Princeton, Harvard, Yale and Columbia Universities along with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology are all in the region’s top 10 (and the nation’s top 15). Besides the military academies, the top five public schools include SUNY Binghamton, University of Pittsburgh, Montclair State University, CUNY Baruch College and the College of New Jersey.

Private liberal arts schools still dominate the region, however. Of the top 100 schools in the nation, 27 are private liberal arts colleges in the northeast. The best of these include Williams, Wellesley, Amherst, Swarthmore, Haverford, Bowdoin, and Vassar colleges, all of which reside in the top 20 schools in the nation.

The crux of the matter seems to be an access issue vs. an equity issue. On the access side, there are those who will argue that private loans will be more difficult to get if the rules are changed to make them fully dis chargeable in bankruptcy.

The basic technique is quite simple to perform and relies on applying a milking motion along the length of the semi erect penile shaft.

Maintaining this moderate pressure, the grip hand then slides forward along the length of the shaft and forces as much blood as possible into all areas of the erectile tissue.

Hanging carries additional health risks due to the restriction of blood flow to the glans, including possible erectile dysfunction. Many tribal practitioners of weight hanging are impotent, although urination is unaffected.
