AMA asks Princeton to cease rankings of “top party schools”
September 5, 2002
The American Medical Association is urging Princeton Review to remove its list of top “party schools” from its annual Best Colleges guide. AMA officials say the rankings legitimize high-risk drinking.
The guide also ranks top colleges in categories such as “Lots of Beer” and “Lots of Hard Liquor.” The rankings are based on surveys of approximately 65,000 students from the 331 colleges listed in the guide.
