The Princeton Review Gives 612 Colleges Financial Aid Ratings
PRINCETON REVIEW REPORTS FINANCIAL AID RATING SCORES FOR 612 COLLEGES FOR 2013
Scores Published in School Profiles on PrincetonReview.com and 2013 Editions of Company College Guides
NEW YORK, August 20, 2012 – The Princeton Review—known for its education services that help students choose, get into, and get financial aid from colleges—today published its annual "Financial Aid Ratings" of colleges. The Company tallied these ratings for 612 colleges this year using data it obtained from the colleges about their aid award programs during the 2011-1012 academic year.
The "Financial Aid Rating" scores (reported on a scale of 60 to 99) appear in the Princeton Review profiles of the colleges on www.PrincetonReview.com and in the new 2013 editions of two Princeton Review guidebooks published by Random House, Inc: "The Complete Book of Colleges" published August 7, and "The Best 377 Colleges", which goes on sale tomorrow, August 21, in a print edition and a new enhanced eBook edition.
The Princeton Review tallies its "Financial Aid Rating" based on data it collects from two sources: institutional surveys of administrators about their school's financial aid award programs, and surveys of students attending the colleges about their satisfaction with their aid awards. Data from the institutional survey includes: the percentage of the school's students determined to have need who received aid, the percentage of need met, and the percentage of students whose aid was fully met.
The Princeton Review's "2013 Financial Aid Rating Honor Roll"
Ten colleges received the highest possible score (99) in the Princeton Review rating tallies this year. The Company named these colleges to its "2013 Financial Aid Rating Honor Roll." The list, which appears on www.PrincetonReview.com and will be published in "The Best 377 Colleges" includes:

Robert Franek, Princeton Review Senior VP / Publisher, said "We salute these schools for their exceptional commitment to meeting the financial aid needs of so many of their students. That commitment is especially meaningful considering the budgetary and economic challenges all institutions of higher education are facing."
Franek noted the growing concerns families have about college costs. Among 10,650 college applicants and parents of applicants Princeton Review surveyed in 2012 for its "College Hopes & Worries Survey," 86% said financial aid would be "very" or "extremely" necessary to pay for college. Survey respondents' biggest worry about their college applications was that they/their child "would get in to their first choice college, but not have sufficient funds to attend it."
Other financial aid information resources The Princeton Review provides in the new edition of its book, "The Best 377 Colleges" (and also on its site) include:
