Not only did Princeton University snag the No. 1 spot on the U.S. News & World Report’s Best Colleges Rankings for 2019, but it was also named first in the nation as the Best Value School among national universities.

To evaluate value, the U.S. News rankings considered a quality-to-price ratio for each school, the percentage of undergraduates receiving need-based scholarships or grants, and the average discount on tuition received.

Four additional schools joined Princeton in the National Universities category and nine from New Jersey appeared among the Regional Universities – North ranking.

Here are the schools U.S. News says gave the best bang for the buck:
