College rankings shouldn't matter

The opinion-page article ``To Find the Right College, Do Your Homework,'' Dec. 1, is something that I can relate to.

I attended Stephens College, a private women's institution in Columbia, Mo., which was ranked extremely low on the list of the Princeton Review's ``Best 306 Colleges.''

If I had read the rankings of colleges before making my decision to attend, I might have changed my mind. Students should be encouraged to pick schools where they can develop to their potential, regardless of national rankings. Rosalynd D. Wethe, Columbia, Mo.
