Six Florida colleges on Princeton Review's list of best values



Six Florida schools including the University of South Florida have made the Princeton Review’s list of the 100 Best Value Colleges for 2009, released today.

Two schools, New College of Florida and Florida State University, made the Top 10 list of best value public colleges, coming in at No. 2 and No. 5, respectively.

Included but not ranked among the other top values for public universities were the University of South Florida, the University of North Florida, the University of Central Florida, and Rollins College.

The Princeton Review made its selections based on surveys of administrators and students at more than 650 public and private colleges and universities. The selection criteria covered more than 30 factors, including academics, costs of attendance, and availability of financial aid, using the most recently reported data from each institution for its 2007-08 academic year.
