The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign made my list of top public universities, and Northwestern is one of the country's top private universities. Some of the other schools on my list of the top 12 Illinois colleges may be less familiar. The colleges on the list were chosen based on a variety of factors including academic strengths, curricular innovations, first-year retention rates, four- and six-year graduation rates, value and student engagement.

I'm a strong believer that my own selection criteria may have little to do with the best school for your own values, academic interests, and professional goals.
