Rachel’s Answer

I agree with the above answers regarding South Dakota universities. That being said, you are certainly limiting your options by not looking outside of the state. There are many state schools, (ie UT in Austin) that are fantastic, affordable, and provide a superb education.

Susan’s Answer

I love this question because the answer is "depends" how you define the best. There are many ways to evaluate schools, and the data that supports the best can be influenced or skewed. Rose, if I told you I was a car salesman and I doubled my sales since last year, you might congratulate me. If you asked me, how many cars did I sell last year and I told you one, you would know in two years, I only sold two cars --not so recognition-worthy! Similar approaches may be placed when promoting schools. Early decision vs overall acceptance rate may be used to calculate GPAs or SAT scores to show the highest or best possible light. Numbers can say what you want them to. The most important item you need to consider is which school is the best for YOU. What do you like, when do you feel you grow the most, do you prefer large or small schools/classes, is your major supported here? You will get out of it what you put into it.

Susan recommends the following next steps:

I encourage you to read Bruni's book, "Where You Go Is Not Who You'll Be." It demystifies the lure of the "best" colleges and is really helpful when exploring where you may want to ultimately go.

Thanks You! Rose M.

Augustana College is reported by many websites to be the best university in South Dakota, but that is from a very broad perspective. Which is the best for you is based off of your specific career path or social preferences.
