HONOLULU — The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa is one of the nation‘s "best value" undergraduate institutions according to The Princeton Review. The New York-based education services company chose UH Mānoa as one of 150 colleges it recommends in the new 2007 edition of its book, "America‘s Best Value Colleges."

The guide profiles public and private colleges in 40 states, naming those with excellent academics, generous financial aid packages and relatively low costs. Colleges are chosen based on data reported from administrators at nearly 650 colleges along with surveys of currently enrolled students.

"We considered over 30 factors to rate the colleges in four categories: academics, tuition GPA (the sticker price minus average amount students receive in scholarships and grants), financial aid (how well colleges meet students‘ financial need), and student borrowing," said Robert Franek, The Princeton Review‘s vice president-publishing. "We recommend the 150 schools in this book as America‘s best college education deals."
