The magazine U.S. News and World Report Monday released its rankings of the nation's best colleges and universities. The popular, annual rankings are based on a variety of metrics, including "outcomes" -- what percentage of students earn an undergraduate degree within six years -- as well as class size and standardized test scores.

Nine New Jersey schools were listed among the best in the "National University" category, which includes schools offering a full range of graduate and undergraduate programs.

A New Jersey school that is is consistently at or near the top of the rankings -- Princeton -- holds the top spot again, beating out Ivy League rivals like Yale and Harvard as well as non-Ivies like Stanford and Duke.

The other New Jersey schools on the list and their rankings are:

Rutgers New Brunswick, No. 62 on the list

Stevens Institute of Technology, Hoboken, 74

New Jersey Institute of Technology, Newark, 97

Rutgers-Newark, 132

Seton Hall University, South Orange, 139

Montclair State University, 169

Rowan University, Glassboro, 166

Rutgers-Camden, 166 (tie)

US News has other specialized lists, such as "best value" and "top regional schools." For the full National University list as well as the other lists, click here.
