UVA Places Higher In Princeton Review

The University of Virginia has moved up two places to No. 14 in the Princeton Review’s 2016 list of the top-50 schools that give the highest return on the cost of tuition.

UVA has one of the largest per-capita endowments of any public school in the country and exerts a tremendous effort to ensure that its undergraduates have access to an affordable education regardless of economic circumstances.
