As much of the Carolina community winces over another tuition increase, The Princeton Review says UNC is the best value in the country.
The company’s new book, 10 Best Value Colleges, profiles 77 schools the education services company chose for outstanding academics, low-to-moderate tuition and fees, and generous financial aid packages.
Amherst College placed second, and City University of New York’s Brooklyn College was third.
The list was compiled based on quantitative and qualitative data obtained from administrators at more than 500 colleges and surveys of their students attending them. The company, using more than 30 factors, rated colleges in three categories: academics, tuition and tuition GPA. The latter is the sticker price minus average amount students receive in gift aid scholarships and grants.
The rest of the top 10, in order, are Rice University; Bates College of Lewiston, Maine; Grinnell College of Iowa; Southwestern University of Georgetown, Texas; the University of Texas at Austin; Lake Forest College of Illinois; and Claremont McKenna College of California.
