Rice a Fiske ‘Best-buy School’
Rice is one of the few elite private colleges to make the list of "best-buy schools "in the 2010 edition of "Fiske Guide to Colleges."
The book, which serves as a reference tool for students, parents and high school counselors, combined cost data with academic ratings and quality of student life on campus to determine which institutions offer remarkable educational opportunities at a relatively modest cost. The guide did not rank the 44 best-buy schools in any order.
The Fiske rating complements two other independent rankings of best values among private colleges that were published this year. Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine and the Princeton Review "Best Value Colleges for 2009"both ranked Rice No. 4 among private schools..
