11 of the Princeton Review's Top Colleges Are in Illinois

11 Illinois colleges were included among the Princeton Review's list of the best 379 colleges in the country for the 2014-2015 school year. The Princeton Review does not rank these nearly 400 schools, only lists them in total.

Since the Princeton Review does not rank the top schools, our list of the 11 Illinois colleges that made the top 379 is in alphabetical order. We also include the top majors at each school, as noted by the Princeton Review, along with acceptance rates and admissions deadlines when applicable. Some schools did not provide information for one or the other. See seven of the best Illinois colleges below, and check out the rest at Reboot Illinois.
