U.S. News Ranking: Most Efficient National Universities
Robert Morse (Director of Data Research, U.S. News), Which Highly Ranked Universities Operate Most Efficiently?:
The new list is based on operating efficiency, defined as a school's 2011 fiscal year financial resources per student divided by its overall score (the basis U.S. News uses to determine its overall numerical rank) in the 2013 Best Colleges rankings. This calculation reveals how much each school is spending to achieve one point in the overall score and its position in the rankings. The less a school is spending relative to its ranking, the more efficient it is in producing a quality education among its peers.

Dumbest. Metric. Ever.

What's so dumb about it? Tuition prices are out of control. To the extent a school is able to control costs while still maintaining a good ranking, it's certainly worth noting so other universities can possible study and adopt the practices.
