How the New Princeton Review College Rankings Compare to MONEY’s

As tuition has risen, parents and students have increasingly focused on finding affordable colleges that deliver real value for the money.

That’s why MONEY, for example, ranks the best value colleges in the U.S., and offers additional financially oriented rankings such as the best private colleges for merit aid.

Washington Monthly and Princeton Review have also just announced their picks for the “Best Bang for the Buck” and “Great Financial Aid” colleges, respectively.

One heartening finding: Although each of the organizations uses different data and methodologies, some colleges are highly ranked on all three.
