THE MAGAZINE BASED THE RANKINGS IN TERMS OF GRADUATION RATES, FACULTY RESOURCES, REPUTATION, AS WELL AS G-I BILL CERTIFICATION AND PARTICIPATION IN THE YELLOW RIBBON PROGRAM, WHICH BOTH REDUCE THE COST OF TUITION FOR VETERANS AND THEIR FAMILIES. OF THE 234 SCHOOLS ON THE LIST, 3 OTHER PENNSYLVANIA SCHOOLS MADE THE TOP 25. THEY ARE DREXEL, DUQUESNE, AND TEMPLE.
