Madison, Wis. (September 9, 2016) – Edgewood College has been named to Money magazine’s Best Colleges List for 2016-17.
The magazine determines the list by beginning with roughly 2,000 four-year U.S. colleges and universities, then narrowing down those that deliver the most value - a great education, at an affordable price, that prepares students for rewarding careers.
The methodology screens out schools with graduation rates below the median, with financial difficulties, or with fewer than 500 undergraduates. The remaining 705 colleges are ranked on 24 factors in three categories: educational quality, affordability, and alumni success. The ranking also take into account measured comparative value, by assessing how well students at each school did vs. what’s expected for students with similar economic and academic backgrounds, and the college’s mix of majors.
