Loyola University Chicago is once again ranked by U.S. News & World Report among the top national universities recognized for offering a "best value" for a college education.
In its annual "Great School, Great Prices" 2006 special report, published in August 2005, U.S. News explains its ranking methodology:
"The formula used to determine which schools offer the best value relates a school's academic quality, as indicated by its U.S. News ranking, to the net cost of attendance for a student who receives the average level of financial aid. The higher the quality of the program and the lower the cost, the better the deal. Only schools ranked in the top half of their categories are included, on the premise that the most significant values are among colleges that are above average academically."
The U.S. News America's Best Colleges 2006 edition also continues Loyola University Chicago's consistent annual ranking among top national universities.
