I was just about to post that. I'm also inclined to point out #5 on the list.

I wondered that myself. Here's an idea of the criteria:

But how to identify colleges and

universities that have recently made striking improvements

or innovations—schools everyone

should be watching?

This spring, for the first time, U.S. News asked

the experts who respond to its annual peer assessment survey

to identify schools that fit this profile. The 70 that received

the most nominations range from household names

like the University of Southern California to Grand Valley

State in Allendale, Mich., and Salve Regina, a 2,000-student

Catholic university in Newport, R.I.

For prospective applicants, we believe the

schools on this list offer the reassurance that

whatever their historical reputation (or lack of

it), they’re firmly focused on improving the job

they’re doing today—at least in the judgment

of their peers.

Here's more on the criteria that was being used:

College presidents, provosts, and admissions deans were asked to nominate up to 10 colleges in their U.S. News America's Best Colleges ranking category "that are making improvements in academics, faculty, students, campus life, diversity, and facilities. These schools are worth watching because they are making promising and innovative changes." This item on the peer survey enabled college officials to pick schools within their ranking category that are rapidly evolving in ways that the public should be aware of and that are not always quickly noticeable in a college's year-to-year rankings.

Just for fun, I clicked on some of the other schools to read their stats and I found one that was pretty shocking.  Arizona State's acceptance rate for fall 2007 was 94.9%!! 

Wow, I didn't even think that was possible.
