An education is an investment. But is the return always worth the investment? Forbes has taken the data about the cost of a college and the salary after graduation, and has ranked the best performers. BYU came in at the 10th spot on this list. The whole process that Forbes used to determine which college was the best value took many different factors into account. While it is more complex than this, essentially it compares the financial benefits of the university to the expenses you would expect for a typical student. So if you know anyone that is looking for a place worth going, tell them to check out BYU.
Recently the U.S. News responded to the above question with their own answer. After analyzing a number of factors, they determined that BYU is great because of its high graduation rate, superb faculty, and its retention of students.
