NBC's Today: Princeton Review reveals top colleges nationwide

Swarthmore College tops Princeton Review's "Great Financial Aid" list in "The Best 378 Colleges: 2014 Edition" guidebook. The ranking, based on survey responses from 126,000 students at colleges and universities across the country, cites Swarthmore as the college at which students reported the most satisfaction with their financial aid.

Earlier this year, the guidebook named Swarthmore the "best value" in the nation among private colleges and universities.

The Princeton Review bases its selections on data obtained through their annual institutional data surveys. They also take into account input from their staff, a 35-member National College Counselor Advisory Board, personal visits to schools, and the wide range of feedback they receive from surveys of students attending these schools.
