Scholastic breakdown: A totally unscientific but utterly believable survey of San Antonio's centers of higher learnin'

Let's forget about the alphabet soup of college life — all those GPA's and GRE's and ACT's — and get down to what really matters: how you, the student, feels on campus, the hottie ratios at your parties, that unmistakable sense that the tweed jackets actually give a flip about you. We sent out our interns to survey campuses around San Antonio to find out what students thought about their higher education experience. While the professors at Trinity University “know their shit” better than their peers at other esteemed institutions around town, it's the University of the Incarnate Word that sweeps the soon-to-be-coveted overall quality selection. And the least cool mascot? Congratulations, Our Lady. Seems the rechristened Saints, just ain't cuttin' it.
