According to UW news, UW is among the 200 institutions included on the list and only seven percent of the nation’s four-year colleges made it to the book.

According to the Princeton Review website, the list of best value colleges is determined based on a combination of institutional and student survey data. These include the institution’s academic rigor, affordability and its career outcomes for graduates.
