Scripps College earned a spot in the Princeton Review‘s annual book of outstanding colleges for academics, affordability, and career prospects. The College is profiled in the new 2018 edition of “Colleges That Pay You Back: The 200 Schools That Give You the Best Bang for Your Tuition Buck.” Princeton Review editors based their selections on a return on investment rating score that included more than 40 data points. The top schools share three exceptional features, according to editors: stellar academics, affordable cost—either via a comparatively low sticker price or generous financial aid (or both)—and strong career prospects for graduates. They also factored in data from PayScale.com surveys conducted through April 2017 on starting and mid-career alumni salaries.
More than 650 schools were considered for the rankings. The top 200, including Scripps College, can be found at: s://www.princetonreview.com/college-rankings/colleges-that-pay-you-back.
