• Our rankings—now out in our book The Best 381 Colleges: 2017 Edition—are based on our surveys of 143,000 students attending these schools. Students rated everything from their financial aid to on-campus food. Grab a copy of the book—available here or wherever books are sold—to see our in-depth profiles of the schools.

    PLEASE NOTE: The Princeton Review does not rank schools overall 1-381. This list appears in alphabetical order. Schools marked "featured" have paid a fee for this designation. For more information on our ranking lists and selection process, check out our methodology and FAQs.
