    "Well so I'm a curious person, and random questions pop into my head all the time. So this time I was trying to figure out how many universities there are in the US, and Statista was recommended. After using the site, I think I might use this site every-time my curiosity strikes. It has many search options to narrow my search down even more, and results come up quickly. I've been asking it tons of questions already and am really happy with this suggestion."

    "Webometrics is a phenomenal tool. It provided me with a list of how many universities there were in various countries, including the U.S. It also ranks them based on a couple of different factors!"

    "Had a red flag thrown for a review on my bar bet from earlier. It seems my opponent found his own source to find universities and it's taken money out of my pocket for the time being. This site is much more to the point in searching for schools as its right there on the homepage. On my site, it took some digging to find the tools. This is right there for you. Not saying it a better source. But it is easier to use. Looks like we need an impartial judge to decide this bet."

    "Got in a bar argument over how many colleges their are in the US. A glance at this website and a click on the 'data' page will offer all the resources about schools in the country. More than half a dozen resources on over 7,000 institutions. Won the bet by the way."
