The Wall Street Journal released its second annual ranking of the top American colleges and universities today, and six of the eight Ivy League schools rank in the top 10.

One surprise: Princeton, ranked number one in the most recent U.S. News & World Report ranking, isn't even in the top five of the ranking, which was compiled in partnership with Times Higher Education. There you'll find Harvard, Columbia University (above), Stanford, MIT, and Duke.

"In our first year, the Journal and THE were lauded for shaking up U.S. rankings." (on the said Phil Baty, Editorial Director, Global Rankings, Times Higher Education. "Unlike traditional competitors, we have built these rankings around a huge survey based on 200,000 current student voices, giving us a student’s eye view of teaching, learning, and life on campus," says Phil Baty, editorial director of global rankings at Times Higher Education. "It gives a rounded and practical understanding of the strengths of individual institutions and the lifelong value of a degree."

The WSJ/THE ranking is based on four categories: resources (e.g. faculty per student), outcomes (e.g. graduation rate), environment (e.g. diversity of faculty and students), and engagement (e.g. interactions with faculty and students).

Here are the Ivy League universities, ranked according to their placement on the full list:

1. Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts

2. Columbia University, New York, New York
