MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The University of Wisconsin-Madison tops a list of the nation's best party schools -- despite a decade-long effort by the school to reduce its reputation for heavy drinking.

The list released yesterday shows that Brigham Young University leads "stone cold sober" schools for the eighth straight year.

The University of Georgia in Athens ranks 12th.

The rankings are based on survey responses regarding alcohol and drug use, hours of study each day, and the number of students in fraternities and sororities.

Schools often criticize the list, while the American Medical Association has urged Princeton Review to stop putting it out, saying it legitimizes students' drinking.

UW-Madison Chancellor John Wiley dismissed the report as "junk science that results in a day of national media coverage."

The list -- which is NOT affiliated with Princeton University -- is based on online surveys of more than 110-thousand college students and is included in the Princeton Review's "Best 361 Colleges."

Other universities listed in the Top 10 party schools were Ohio University-Athens, Lehigh University in Pennsylvania, University of California-Santa Barbara, State University of New York at Albany, Indiana University-Bloomington, University of Mississippi, University of Iowa, University of Massachusetts-Amherst and Loyola University New Orleans.
