for Best Value by CostofLearning.com
Baruch College, leads the charge for all other senior colleges within the City University of New York. A list of the 30 top schools with the highest overall grades, as well as grades on each dimension, can be found here.
CostofLearning.com released its first College Ratings Report Card to help families identify the best value schools. The proprietary Cost of Learning report card provides a letter grade for more than 1,600 public and private colleges that the company analyzed on four different performance dimensions: graduation rate, diversity, non-federal loan burden and net pricing.
To assess the overall grade for each college, Cost of Learning looked at the 1,600 public and private schools in its database and analyzed them across the four data points using data reported from the Department of Education. The data was weighted on four dimensions with graduation rate 30%, diversity 15%, student debt burden 20% and net pricing 35% of the total number. Cost of Learning then used its proprietary data modeling to transform these data points into a score which was assigned a letter grade.
