A college education is pricey, especially when you’re talking about top-ranked private schools where a year’s tuition will easily cost you more than $40,000. But paying more for school won’t necessarily guarantee you post-grad success. So you really should place value high on your college wish list.  WalletHub recently compared nearly 1000 higher-education institutions in the U.S. to determine which undergraduate schools give you the most bang for your buck. By comparing Student Selectivity, Cost & Financing, Faculty and Career Outcomes, they found the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) the best value. However with an annual tuition of $51,520, it is an expensive experience. Princeton, Yale, Harvard and the California Institute of Technology round out the top five.  As for schools in Florida, The University of Florida is the highest and 66th overall, Florida State University is second and 97th overall followed by The University of South Florida (100th overall), University of Miami (105th overall) and University of Central Florida (147th overall). As for tuition and programs that assist students in finding work, the University of West Florida in Pensacola is ranked highest in the Sunshine State. In Factuality resources, such as average class size, student-faculty ratio and full/part time facility, St. Thomas University in Miami Gardens scores highest in state.
