Kiplinger's has announced its 2011 best values in public college report and the news comes as no surprise. Despite sweeping budget cuts at state universities across the United States, the magazine asserts that there are deals to be had while still receiving a quality education. Editor Janice Bennett Clark offers this advice to prospective students:

Look for schools that deliver an outstanding, affordable education in good times and bad. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, ranked Kiplinger's number-one best value for public colleges and universities for a remarkable ten times running, is a prime example. Carolina's admission rate remains among the lowest on our annual list; its students are among the most competitive; and its in-state cost, at $17,000, is not much higher than the average price ($16,140) for all public universities. For students who qualify for need-based aid, the total price for this top-tier university drops to an average of $7,020.
