When pursuing a degree in today's world, student athletes have many different options to choose from. One of our goals at College Factual is to give you as much information as we can - such as our Best Colleges for Division I Women's Basketball in Georgia ranking - to help you make that decision.

We analyzed 6 colleges and universities across Georgia to determine which were the best for D1 Women's Basketball athletes in Georgia. Our ranking is based on several objective factors, including the school's overall quality and the athletic competitiveness of the school. We steer clear of subjective measures since they don't give a clear picture when determining how one school compares to another. So, even if a school has a great team, it won't place well if it is also considered a low quality college or university.

See what other factors we include in our ranking methodology.

Since one ranking on its own is not enough to give you a complete understanding of your educational options, you can refine this list by location. We've also developed a number of other tools and rankings based on other factors. These other rankings highlight colleges that excel in other factors such as value or diversity as well as schools that excel in serving different groups of students such as online students or returnings adults.

One of our other unique offerings is College Combat. This tool lets you build your own customized comparisons utilizing the factors that are most important to you.
