Texas A&M Tops Among Texas Public Colleges In Kiplinger’s 2013 “Best Values” Rankings

an aerial view of the Academic Building at Texas A&MTexas A&M University placed first in Texas in Kiplinger’s Personal Finance “best value” rankings of public colleges for 2012-13.

The widely distributed publication announced its “top 100 best values” in public schools today, ranking Texas A&M 18th nationally and tops in Texas. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill heads the list, just as it has done since the magazine began its ratings in 1998.

Kiplinger’s editors say they base their ratings on a combination of “outstanding education and economic value.” Janet Bodnar, the magazine’s editor, said, “We applaud this year’s top 100 schools for their efforts to maintain academic standards while meeting the financial needs of their students.”

Texas A&M has a long record of figuring prominently in rankings focusing on high quality of education coupled with costs. Most recently, Texas A&M placed second in a Washington Monthly survey that also includes values of research contributions and overall service to the nation.

  5. These rankings are fake!
    If you want to know the truth just go and ask International Graduate students about how Texas A&M is like!
    This university gets money from students and if you don’t pay them they make your life like hell! in contrary when it is time for them to give you some money, then nobody replies to your questions or emails!!!!
    This school charges you on anything they can! even your funding resources money is charged by huge amounts of fees (350 dolars a month!) They even charge you for recreational center!

    The nominally give you money as funding and later they take it back with different excuses!

    This school’s ranking is not real!
