31 Colleges Across New York State Among America's Best
"Our list of best colleges is based on ratings from 165,000 real students across the country to find out what they love the most about these schools," the Princeton Review states.
College students from across the country filled out an 85-question survey to rate their their professors, administrators, financial aid, campus amenities, school services, and other aspects of life at their colleges.
Students from top universities across the United States were asked to rank their school on a number of factors, but most importantly quality of life and academics.
“We created our rankings to provide a resource for college applicants that helps them answer what may well be the toughest question in their college search—‘What’s the best school for me?’” The Princeton Review Editor-In-Chief and lead author of The Best 389 Colleges Rob Franek said in a press release. “Our selection of colleges for this book reflects our high opinion of the schools: we recommend each one as academically outstanding. Our ranking lists reflect the opinions of the school’s students—their customers—and their reports to us about their campus experiences.”
The Princeton Review highlighted the 389 best colleges across the country. The Princeton Review doesn't rank colleges, it simply posts the top 389 colleges in alphabetical order.

These Are New York's 14 Most Expensive Colleges For 2022-2023
The Business Journals calculated total yearly cost for higher learning across America. Their total cost figures no financial aid, no in-state discounts for public universities, and the cost of books, room, board, and general living expenses.
By far, New York is the country’s the most expensive state for college, with more schools in the top 60 than any other state. We have 14: one in the top five, and three more in the top 20. Massachusetts finished second with 10 colleges in the most expensive 60. This is probably not a distinction to be particularly proud of, but as inflation continues this trend isn’t likely to slow down over the next year.
