NC State Ranked Second in National 'Best Value' List

North Carolina   State   University is second on The Princeton Review's list of best values among the nation's public colleges and universities. The rankings were released March 28. 

NC State also typically does well in the best value rankings published by U.S. News & World Report, in which the university was ranked fifth nationally this year.

The Princeton Reviews best-value ranking takes four factors into consideration: academics, tuition GPA (the sticker price minus average amount students receive in gift-aid scholarships and grants), financial aid (how well colleges meet students financial need), and student borrowing. The list was compiled using data obtained from administrators at 646 colleges and surveys of students attending them.
