The University of Oregon ranked 98th of 100 for in-state and 99th for out-of-state students on a list of best values in public education for 2013.

The schools on the list are considered by the list’s organizers, Kiplinger’s Personal Finance, to be the 100 best public universities in the nation for college students to invest their time and money. More than 600 state schools were considered in the study, according to a Kiplinger’s spokesperson, Jessica Weeg. Even if Oregon ranks near the bottom, the UO still beats out those other 500 and every other Oregon school considered. Weeg believed the UO should see the ranking as an accomplishment.

The annual list ranks educational value of public universities for money spent and debt accrued.

Though the UO surely earns kudos for making the list, the ranking emphasizes how far the University has to go to compete with its West Coast peers.
