Massachusetts has some of the best colleges in the country and several of the best schools in New England. Harvard often tops the lists of best universities, and both Amherst and Williams have found themselves on top of rankings for liberal arts colleges. MIT and Olin win top marks for engineering. The top colleges listed below vary so much in size and type of school that I have simply listed them alphabetically rather than force them into any sort of artificial ranking.
