Here is a snippet from the US News homepage about Williams being ranked the #1 liberal arts college in the country. I am looking for an on-line version of the main write-up, but haven’t found one yet. Please send us your links. One number that jumps out at me is the 7% of classes with more than 50 people. At Williams, there should be no such classes. Indeed, it is hard to come up with a more inefficient method of knowledge transfer than a large lecture. There is no meaningful interaction. One size must fit all. But all this is a topic for a longer post.
