The seven SUNY schools (unranked above) were selected from 650 colleges at which The Princeton Review conducted institutional and student surveys for in 2011-12. The rankings’ methodology examined more than 30 data points covering academics, cost of attendance, and financial aid.
The Princeton Review rankings are released on the back of a strong year for SUNY rankings throughout agencies:

Robert Franek, Princeton Review’s Senior VP/Publisher and lead author, The Best Value Colleges, said, “We commend these colleges for their stellar academics and their exceptional affordability as evidenced by their generous financial aid awards or their comparatively low sticker prices—or both.”
Among the Princeton Review’s “2013 Top 10 Public Best Value Colleges,” the average cost of attendance for in-state students is about $8,300 (after deducting the average grants awarded to students with need).
