Milwaukee School of Engineering is one of the best colleges and universities in the Midwest according to The Princeton Review. Only 159 institutions were named to the “Best in the Midwest” list on The Princeton Review’s website feature, “2016 Best Colleges: Region by Region.”

According to The Princeton Review, “Our ‘2016 Best Colleges: Region by Region’ feature identifies schools we recommend (though do not rank) as ‘regional bests’ across four locales: the Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, and West. In total, 649 schools received this designation from us. Our 649 regional best colleges are a select group, indeed. They constitute only 25% of the nation’s four-year colleges. From hundreds of institutions we considered in each region, we selected them primarily for their excellent academics. We also weighed what students attending the schools reported to us about their campus experiences at them on our student survey for this project.”

To compile their lists, The Princeton Review asks students attending the schools to rate their own schools on several issues — from the accessibility of their professors to quality of their science lab facilities — and answer questions about themselves, their fellow students, and their campus life. Comments from surveyed students are quoted in the school profiles on The Princeton Review site.
