When the annual Princeton Review rankings were released earlier this week, Monmouth University took to social media to celebrate.
“The 2019 Princeton Review rankings have been released,” the university wrote in a Facebook post, “and for the 14th year, we’re one of the best.”
It’s true that the private university ranked among the top 384 colleges (listed only in alphabetical order). But Monmouth left out the fact that it also appeared on another, more specific list.
It’s No. 4 for colleges where “Students Study the Least.”
Yes, the Princeton Review giveth, and the Princeton Review taketh away. Of the nine New Jersey colleges that made the top 384, seven of them appear on at least one negative list, as well.
Here is the full rundown of where New Jersey colleges placed on the lists, which are based solely on student surveys.
