7 Georgia Colleges & Universities Make ‘Best 385’ List by The Princeton Review

Seven Georgia colleges and universities landed a spot on the 2020 ‘Best 385’ List by The Princeton Review.

Seven Georgia colleges and universities landed a spot on the 2020 ‘Best 385’ List by The Princeton Review.

The best colleges are ranked on a variety of factors, including academics, administration, demographics, politics, location, and quality of life. All of the factors are ranked by surveys taken by current students at the individual institutions. More than 140,000 students across 385 schools were surveyed.

The Princeton Review does not rank the schools in the book overall, 1 to 385, hierarchically or in a single list category. The Princeton Review reports the top 20 schools (of the 385 in the book) for each of its 62 different ranking list categories—but does not report ranks beyond the top 20 in any category (i.e., schools ranked 21 to 385). You can read more on the methodology here.

Of the 62 different lists ranked by the Princeton Review, 7 Georgia schools appeared in the rankings.
