The 2007 Kaplan/Newsweek “How to Get ito College Guide” was announced today, and introduces the “New Ivies” — colleges whose academic programs and numbers of top students “have fueled their rise in stature and favor … edging them to a competitive status rivaling the Ivy League.” The list covers undergraduate programs, not law schools. But as Boston College Law School grad (class of way-back-when), I was happy to see BC on the list.
