Updated 2:50pm: When we saw Brooklyn College announce yesterday it had been ranked as the fourth best college in the country by The Princeton Review, we were super psyched, though it looks like we jumped the gun on announcing the news. Brooklyn College, indeed, was named as one of the best 380 colleges in the country by The Princeton Review — though it is not ranked at number four. It is listed as the fourth college in the publication’s list because it is a client of the review. We apologize for the error, and we’re happy to see that the college is receiving recognition, even if it’s not number four!

Original post (with the correction included): Brooklyn College has long been lauded as being one of the top schools in the country, with The Princeton Review heaping praise on everything from its affordability and academic standards to its diversity and environmentally-friendly campus.

Now, that list of accolades has grown again, and The Princeton Review just ranked our community’s educational powerhouse, located at 2900 Bedford Avenue, as one of the best colleges in the entire country, based on student satisfaction.

Using reviews from 136,000 students at top colleges across the United States, The Princeton Review crafted its annual list, “The Best 380 Colleges.”

As part of the reviews, students were asked to rate their schools on a myriad topics to assess their campus experiences, including academics, administration, student body, and so on.

“Every college in our book has outstanding academics,” Robert Franek, Princeton Review’s Senior VP Publisher, said in a press release. “While our purpose is not to crown one college academically ‘best’ overall or to rank the schools 1 to 380 on any single topic, our lists provide direct student feedback on the schools’ campus culture, program offerings and cost. Our goal is to help applicants choose and get into their dream college—the college best for them.”
