UCSD ranks 11th on Kiplinger’s ‘Best Values’ list

UCSD is ranked 11th among the nation’s “100 best values in public colleges” by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance, it was announced Monday.

The 2009-10 rankings appear in the magazine’s February issue, which hits newsstands Tuesday.

Topping the list was the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, followed by the University of Florida and University of Virginia.

“Despite widespread state government budget cuts and shrinking endowments, this year’s top 100 public schools continue to deliver strong academics at reasonable prices,” said Janet Bodnar, Kiplinger’s editor.

The rankings were based on admission and retention rates, student-faculty ratios and four- and six-year graduation rates, cost and financial aid among a pool of more than 500 public four-year colleges and universities.
