The Publisher Rating refers to a combination of scores made by U.S. News & World Report, Forbes, and other prominent college-ranking publications, while the Student Review Rating is created by gathering reports from respected student review sites such as Cappex, Niche, and Student Review. Both scores are then combined to create the College Consensus score, which does not consider the size, location, or classification of universities. Trinity received an overall College Consensus score of 76, with a Publisher Rating of 73.8 and a Student Consensus of 78.2.
