Another rating Princeton Review provides is an overall score taking into account things like dorm and food quality, the beauty of the campus, the relationship with the town, and the responsiveness of the administration. All of these things have at least some value to me, so I’m using these numbers from the same book. Here are the schools where students rate their overall experience at 90 or above.
