There’s a college ranking that came out recently and this one hails from Dr. Daniel A. Sternberg, Ph.D. and Lumosity.

According to a “Forbes” piece on the smartest college students, “The youthful Sternberg and his Lumos Labs compadres — using ‘self-reported email addresses and/or the web domain associated with’ a student’s ‘IP address’ — selected out the scores of 60,000 students at 411 colleges and universities on a series of Lumosity ‘cognitive training games.’ These games measured intelligence in the ‘Five Lumosity Brain Areas: Speed, Attention, Flexibility, Memory, and Problem-Solving.'”
