“We salute Clemson for its outstanding academics and its many other impressive offerings. We’re delighted to recommend it as an ideal choice for students searching for their ‘best-fit’ college,” said Rob Franek, The Princeton Review‘s editor-in-chief and lead author of The Best 388 Colleges.  

The Princeton Review chose schools based on data it annually collects from surveys of 2,000 college administrators about their institutions’ academic offerings. For its selection of profiled schools for the book, the company also reviews data from its surveys of college students attending the schools. Only about 14% of America’s 2,700 four-year colleges are profiled in the book.

The Princeton Review does not rank the colleges in the book hierarchically, from 1 to 388. However, the book has 50 categories of ranking lists. Each list names the top 25 schools (of those in the book) in its category. The ranking lists are tallied based on The Princeton Review’s surveys of 160,000 students at the 388 schools in the book. The company’s 85-question student survey asks students to rate their colleges on dozens of topics and report on their campus experiences. Information on the survey process and methodology for the ranking lists is on The Princeton Review’s website here.
