Princeton Review Editor-in-Chief Rob Franek says, “Our selection of colleges in this book (“The 388 Best Colleges”) is based on our opinion of their academic offerings. We recommend each as an outstanding academic choice for one. However , our ranking lists are not based on our college reviews. They are entirely based on what school students have told us about their experiences.
