Best Value Schools | Jan. 20, 2014
The value of a university education is difficult to calculate. BestValueSchools.com sourced Kiplinger’s Best Values in Private Colleges, Kiplinger’s Best Values in Public Colleges, and Payscale’s College ROI Rankings to determine which universities give students the best bang for their buck.
The University of Notre Dame comes in at #2, behind only California Institute of Technology, and besting Princeton University and the University of Pennsylvania.
"[Notre Dame] boasts one of the highest 30 year ROIs on this list, even edging out Princeton by a small margin," the site says. "The average student debt is slightly higher than the national average, but the value of the education after graduation more than makes up for the debt incurred."
