From staff reportsJanuary 28, 2014 

Two North Carolina universities made the Top 10 best values in public higher education in a new ranking from the Princeton Review.

UNC-Chapel Hill was the nation’s best value among the publics and N.C. State University was No. 4, according to the list.

The Princeton Review ranks schools using 30 pieces of data on academic quality, cost of attendance and financial aid.

For its ranking, the test-preparation company chose 150 colleges and universities — 75 public and 75 private. Only the top 10 were numerically ranked. The rest were listed alphabetically.

Other North Carolina schools on the list were: Appalachian State University; Davidson College; Duke University; UNC-Asheville; and UNC-Wilmington.
