Deciding which college to attend is one of life’s most important decisions.

So many issues loom:

  • Does it offer the program you’d like to study?
  • Is the program any good?
  • Is the college worth the money (and oh, how much money it is) that you’ll be spending?

These are all important questions to ask when choosing where you will spend four (or more) years’ time and money.

Money magazine analyzed 744 colleges in compiling its list of the 25 best colleges in America, based on cost and value.

Factors such as “graduations rates,” “tuition fees,” “family borrowing” and “alumni salaries” were considered.

The University of California-Irvine tops this year’s list. Its estimated price for 2019–20 with average aid is $14,900, and it boasts an 85% graduation rate and $57,700 average early career earnings, making it the best college for the price.

A slew of California-based colleges landed top spots on the list. Here are the top 10:

  1. University of California-Irvine
  2. City University of New York, Baruch College
  3. Princeton University
  4. University of California-Los Angeles
  5. University of California-Davis
