Universities are highly popular now. And for good reason. It’s hard to get a decent job anywhere in the U.S. without at least a bachelor’s degree. Many good jobs demand even more. So where should you get your degrees? You could go the cheap way and do a state college. Or you could dish out a huge sum and go to one of the best universities in the U.S. Which one tops all the others? You decide!

Finally getting away from the East Coast and heading the West Coast, we have Stanford University in California's Bay Area, which is only about 30 minutes from San Francisco. Students have plenty of opportunities to get involved in research projects as they focus on the private school's stress on the multidisciplinary combination of teaching, learning, and researching.
