If you've seen movies based on college life in the US - most of them have been shot in universities that have a good ranking, basically a category of elite universities. Also known as Ivy League universities, a term that strictly applies to universities with academic excellence, selective admissions and social elitism.
When we begin searching for universities for our undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, we're mostly attracted by the top-most universities and the reasons are clearly understandable. Some institutions simply stand out based on its curriculum, infrastructure, activities, placements, culture, environment, etc.
