Kiplinger’s Magazine (Feb, 2010) ranks best public colleges in terms of best academics at affordable prices. As stated in an e-mail I received this morning from FYI Carolina to Carolina Alumni and Friends:
Carolina remains the #1 overall best academic value in U.S. public higher education, according to Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine. The University has ranked first on the magazine’s list of schools that “deliver strong academics at affordable prices” since 1998 when Kiplinger’s began its analysis.
Here is the searchable database of Kiplinger’s Top 100.
Here are the refined results for NC. The list includes UNC, NC State, AppState, UNC-W, UNC-A, and the North Carolina School of the Arts.
I’ll have to keep this academic/value proposition in mind each month as I cut that check to UNC…
