US News rankings. (And I'm not going to argue they should be ranked any better in that ranking as it is a reflection of what US News values.)
However, when we get past the academic mumble jumbo and find how well BYU does at producing students people in the real world actually wants to hire and employ, it is hard to beat BYU. The Wall Street Journal polled the US's top employers, corporations, government agencies, etc... and asked them what schools they most wanted to recruit students from to hire.
And the results: BYU is #11 in the nation.
According to the entities polled, the top schools in this poll:
1. Had the most well rounded students.
2. Had students who were the most academically prepared.
3. Had students with the most relevant training for the real world workforce.
So, given BYU was my Alma Mater I must say I am impressed how well the school is preparing students for the real world.
