Depends on what you're looking for. I would definately put Northwestern as 1st and Michigan as 2nd but Ohio State is in the mix with Wisconsin, Illinois, Penn State, and Indiana for 3rd.

the University of Minnesota's research center is matched by no one, while having the largest on-site campus in the country with the 2nd highest enrollment(damn you U of Texas) and the athletics are good in every sport(according to other college's standards)

Are you talking for athletes or everyone in general? Trust me when I say a lot of Ohio State's graduate departments are pretty hard to get into.

The Big Ten is probably the best in academic among the major conferences, and probably only second to the Ivy league. I cant really name a bad academic school in the Big Ten, all of them are outstanding academically.

Are you talking undergrad or graduate school? Becuase Iowa is fairly easiy to get into, but the way they evaluate incoming freshman, its actually easiear to get into if you come from an average or so size high school, the bigger the high school, the harder it is to get in. I found that strange.

According to USA Today or some magazine like that, Harvard and Princeton are tied for 1st for best university in the u.s.

This is a kinda serious question:

If someone had a 98.3 average (3rd in class of 220) and played football for four years, but with no activities other than the year-long football program, could he get in any of the listed schools?

EDIT - and let's say 2100 on his SATs (just a guess cause I haven't taken them yet)

It's possible. The thing about Ivy League admissions is that even if you're an amazing student with great extracurriculars, you're still not guaranteed a spot. It's based on luck a lot and many great students are rejected from these schools. It's basically a numbers game. The more places you apply, the better chances you have. Always pick a few safety schools to fall back on if you don't get accepted to your top choices.

Once I re-take the SATs and ACTs and raise my 2100 and 33, respectively, I could get in with some of the letters of recomendation I could get.
