SUMMARY: The university is profiled in the new 2017 edition of "Colleges That Pay You Back: The 200 Schools That Give You the Best Bang for Your Tuition Buck."


James Madison University continues to garner a spot in the Princeton Review’s annual book of outstanding colleges for academics, affordability and career prospects. 

The university is profiled in the new 2017 edition of "Colleges That Pay You Back: The 200 Schools That Give You the Best Bang for Your Tuition Buck." 

The Princeton Review selected schools based on a comprehensive analysis of more than 650 colleges that weighted at least 40 data points to tally return on investment ratings. Data analyzed covered academics, cost, financial aid, graduation rates, student debt and more. The company collected the data from its 2015-16 surveys of administrators and students at the schools. It also factored in data from an online compensation survey on starting and mid-career salaries of alumni of the schools. 

The 2017 project is an expansion of The Princeton Review's annual Best Value Colleges book and list first published in 2004. The Princeton Review expanded the rankings and published the first edition of the book with Random House in 2011. It was then further expanded in response to findings of the company's 2015 College Hopes & Worries Survey, which polled 12,000 college applicants and parents.
