(KNX 1070) -- For the first time in its history, UCLA sits alone as the top-ranked public university in the country,  according to a new survey by US News and World Report.

In addition to all-around academic excellence, UCLA was helped by a new metric that looked at how students from low-income families performed.

KNX talked to Anita Narayan, a managing education editor at US News and World Report:

UC Berkeley was ranked second, UC Santa Barbara fifth,  and UC Irvine was seventh among public universities a good year for California schools.
