The 2014 edition of The Best Value Colleges: The 150 Best-Buy Schools and What It Takes to Get In lists TCNJ among top colleges and universities based on excellent academics, financial aid and cost of attendance.
TCNJ is praised for having top-notch faculty and the newest technology, according to survey responses, as well as “a ton of opportunities to try new things.”
The annual guidebook features profiles of the schools with detailed information about their respective analysis factors. Of the 75 schools in each group, the top 10 colleges are identified in rank order, and the remaining 65 are listed in alphabetical order and unranked.
To choose the schools for inclusion in its book, The Princeton Review drew from surveys conducted in 2012-13 of 2,000 undergraduate institutions concerning their academics, cost and financial aid awards and from student survey data collected over the past three academic years. The selection process analyzed school-reported information across more than 30 data points covering academics, cost, and financial aid as well as data from The Princeton Review’s surveys of students at the schools over the past three academic years.
The full listing of public and private colleges and universities is available at http://www.princetonreview.com/bestvaluecolleges. The Princeton Review released its annual list and its companion book on Jan. 28.
