Kiplinger's names UW-Madison a "best value"


MADISON (WKOW) -- The University of Wisconsin-Madison has been ranked 14th in the nation for value to its students.

Kiplinger's Personal Finance reviewed more than 500 public four-year colleges and universities to determine the best values, taking into account academic measures -- ACT or SAT scores, admission and retention rates, student-faculty ratios and graduation rates -- as well as affordability, which includes total expenses and available aid.

UW-Madison lead the Big Ten, followed by the University of Michigan at No. 19.

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill took the top honors; two other UW-System schools were ranked in the top 100: UW-La Crosse (No. 43) and UW-Eau Claire (No. 67).
