The Best 379 Colleges 2015 - Princeton Review
ISBN: 9780804124799
The biggest difference is our one-of-a-kind ranking lists. Or, better put: 62 of a kind. We ask students (130,000 for this edition!) at the colleges in this book to rate their schools on dozens of topics and report on their experiences at them. From that student survey data, we tally the book's 62 ranking lists, each one revealing the top 20 schools in a category that an applicant -- or a parent of an applicant -- has told us matters to them. Want to know which colleges have the best career services? The most accessible profs? Are LGBT-friendliest? We have lists for each of these in our book. Another feature only in our book is our eight college rating scores. Using data we get from our college administrator surveys, we score each school from 60 to 99 in eight categories including financial aid, admission selectivity, and fire safety.
