    Brown University was recently rated the country's third-best school for software developers at startups by LinkedIn.

    Their methodology was to identify the top startups where software developers are choosing to work, then find people on LinkedIn who work as software developers and determine where they went to school. LinkedIn then cross-referenced by finding the percentage of alumni for each school who have software development jobs at the startups, then compared the percentages to create the list.

    Brown University came out ahead of Top Ten competitors such as Princeton University and Carnegie Mellon University, and even schools such as Cornell University and University of California, Berkeley, whose LinkedIn presence is four times the size of Brown's.
