    For its 2019 roundup, WalletHub ranked schools based on a variety of measures. The study focused on 30 key measures grouped into seven categories, such as student selectivity, cost and financing, and career outcomes. The site analyzed 1,000 national schools, looking at data ranges from student-faculty ratio to graduation rate to post-attendance median salary.

    Davidson College, a private liberal arts school located about 21 miles north of uptown, was the lone college from the Charlotte region to be among the top 10 in the Tar Heel state.
