LA JOLLA, Calif. — UC San Diego was 31st among U.S. universities in a return-on-investment ranking by The Princeton Review, the school announced Thursday.

UCSD was called one of the top universities for science, providing access to cutting-edge technology.

“We are pleased that UC San Diego’s return-on-investment for our students is once again highly ranked,” said Chancellor Pradeep Khosla. “UC San Diego’s stellar academic programs and outstanding faculty prepare our students to be successful in their careers and trailblazers in their fields.”

The Princeton Review study took into account alumni salaries, career satisfaction and student feedback.

The top-ranked schools were the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in New York, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Harvey Mudd College near Los Angeles and Stanford.

The Princeton Review also ranked UCSD as the 21st best college for students who aren’t eligible for financial aid.

The rankings were released in the 2015 edition of The Princeton Review book, “Colleges That Pay You Back: The 200 Best Value Colleges and What It Takes to Get In.”
