Three UC schools ranked among public school bargains

Despite skyrocketing tuition costs, three University of California schools were named among the nation’s best public school bargains in rankings published Tuesday by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance.

UC Berkeley, UCLA, and UC San Diego finished seventh, ninth and 10th, respectively, in the magazine’s annual analysis, which honors 100 schools for their combination of quality and affordability. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill was ranked first for the 11th consecutive year.

A news release from the organization said that the rankings were revamped this year “to give more weight to academic value.”  

In-state tuition at the three UC schools is the highest among any in the top 10.

Nine other California schools finished in the magazine’s top 100: UC Santa Barbara (17th), UC Davis (20th), UC Irvine (22nd), UC Santa Cruz (56th), San Diego State (77th), Cal Poly San Luis Obispo (83rd), Cal Poly Pomona (91st), UC Riverside (95th) and Cal State Long Beach (98th).
