Two North Carolina Universities In Wall Street Journal's Top 25

Two universities in North Carolina are among The Wall Street Journal's Top 25 list of best colleges and universities, as ranked by job recruiters.

North Carolina State in Raleigh is tied for 19th place with the University of Virginia. According to the WSJ, NC State has 10 undergraduate colleges, and more than 90% of students come from North Carolina. It's a good value. The in-state tuition for 2010-2011 was just under $6,000.

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is tied for 25th place with Washington State University. UNC Chapel Hill offers 77 majors.

According to the WSJ, the majority of freshman (nearly 80%) were at the top 10% of their class in high school.

North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University did not make the Top 25 or 100 list. But NC A&T was one of the 31 schools that at least five recruiters marked down.

    Dave and JDLadd: You two are examples a. and b. that I referenced in my post yesterday. There could be books written about the emotional angst of the two of you. Perhaps I'll come back to the Living Earth, resurrect my career, provide psychoanalysis to both of you and then make money documenting this effort. Alas, I think my plan might be doomed as your prognosis is very dim (or should that be dim-witted?). Take care boys, I've gotta leave you now to go plead my appeal, yet again (oh, the unfairness of it all!), to St. Peter. Wish me luck, he's a tough old fella.

    The ECU lovers at WITN are doing their best to get this story off their page. It has fallen down to the bottom in the seldom read category.

    They should all be ranked #1, why hurt peoples feelings? Such a cruel and heartless world; we would all be better off under socialism.

    I understand why NC and State are on this list because those two degrees will get you hired over an ECU grad any day.

    I have been living here too long and am becoming confused like the locals. What I meant to say is Community college is HARDER than EZU.

    Oh shut up Blake. You are nothing more than some ignorant troll from next to Cheater Hill trying to start something. Just stay away from the page and play with your boyfriend.

    Only 25% of students who enroll at ECU, graduate.

    Nice one EC Pew. I agree with you because it's hard to read when you are too hung over in class from partying 7 days a week. ECU is a joke. Community college is easier.
