TrendTopper Media Buzz, a twice yearly analysis of the nation’s top 300 colleges and universities, has named New York the Top State for Top Colleges and Pratt Institute its Top Design School. The list is assembled by the Global Language Monitor (GLM) an Austin, Texas-based company that surveys social media such as Twitter, as well as the Internet, blogosphere, and the global print and electronic media. This method, says GLM’s president, Paul JJ Payack “removes the biases inherently built into each of the other published rankings.”

Within New York, TrendTopper’s rankings are as follows:

No. 1 State: New York

Top College: Vassar College

Top University: Columbia University

Top Academy: United States Military Academy

Top Music School: Juilliard School

Top Design School: Pratt Institute

Top Surprise: NY as the No. 1 State

California ranks second, and Massachusetts came in third place.
