Fiske chose these schools because they had a combination of competitive pricing and strong academics. If you're comparison shopping, you'll find that many of these college and universities can often cost tens-of-thousands of dollars less than some private institutions with similar academic profiles.
The "Best Buy" lists are just one of the features you'll find in the Fiske Guide to Colleges 2014. You can learn more about the publication on the College Countdown website.
