The Air Force Academy was named one of the nation’s top 100 best value colleges for 2010 today by The Princeton Review, the academy announced in a news release.

The Best Values College List contains 50 public and 50 private colleges. The selections were chosen as “best value” colleges based on surveys of administrators and students at more than 650 public and private colleges and universities.

In Colorado, only the Air Force Academy and University of Colorado-Boulder made this year’s list. For more on the best values college list, go here.

In its profile of the Air Force Academy, the Princeton Review's editors state that “cadets endure painfully hard academics, military instruction, and an overall strictly regimented existence. The workload is monstrous — more than the average human being could possibly complete, really. If you can make it through this four-year gauntlet, though, an Air Force diploma is an awesome credential. You will almost certainly leave here with a knack for leadership and a skill set that will impress your friends.”
Among the other 99 colleges on the Best Values Colleges list is the Military Academy, Naval Academy, Coast Guard Academy, and Merchant Marine Academy.

I agree!! I have a daughter who is a 2008 graduate of Air Force Academy. She went directly from high school to the Air Force Academy. She is doing wonderfully well in her job assignment. I had a opportunity to visit her at her base and spoke with the Lt.Col. of her unit-- he had great praises for the job she is currently doing. He also told me that she had a great future in the Air Force if she wanted to continue to pursue it. He applauded her leadership skills, and her attention to details in completing job assignments. He told me he was very happy to have a 2nd Lt. with such great qualities working for and with him. As her mother, I am estatic and very please to hear this. My daughter is up for promotion to 1st Lt. during the spring of this year. Thecourse load and other military duties were grueling for her; but she had the tenacity to never quit and get a job done with accuracy.I am happy she made the choice to accept the appointment to the Air Force Academy. Thanks to her training at the Air Force Academy-- Go Air Force!!
