Loyola University's Business and Law Colleges named to Princeton Review’s 2008 “Best Of” Guides

Loyola press release - October 16, 2007

(New Orleans) —Loyola University New Orleans College of Business and College of Law are among the nation’s most outstanding schools, according to the Princeton Review. Both colleges are featured in the New York-based education services company’s 2008 publications Best 290 Business Schools and Best 170 Law Schools, respectively.

According to Robert Franek, Princeton Review vice president of publishing, “We chose schools for these books based on our high regard for their academic programs and offerings, institutional data we collect from the schools, and the candid opinions of students attending them who rate and report on their campus experiences at the schools. We are pleased to recommend Loyola University New Orleans as one of the best institutions they could attend to earn either a law or an MBA degree.”

The Princeton Review compiled the ranking lists based on its surveys of 18,000 students attending the 170 law schools and 19,000 students attending the 290 business schools. In a “Survey Says” sidebar in the profile, the Princeton Review lists topics that Loyola students it surveyed for the book were in most agreement about. The list includes “cutting-edge classes,” and “good peer network.” The tallies of student survey-based ranking lists were based on surveys of students during the 2006-07, 2005-06, and 2004-05 academic years, primarily online at the Princeton Review’s student survey site (http://survey.review.com).

Both Best 290 Business Schools and Best 170 Law Schools feature two-page profiles of the schools with write-ups on their academics, student life, and admissions, plus ratings for their academics, selectivity, and career placement services. More information can be found at www.PrincetonReview.com
