There is no one way to define a "good" college or university. Admissions difficulty and admitted student statistics can give you a sense of how selective a college is, but they don't say much about the quality of the education or the student experience. There are a few statistics that can give you a good idea of how satisfied students are and how well a school supports its students.
Retention, graduation, and job placement statistics all give valuable information about the quality of the student experience, before and after graduation.
