It really depends on the major to be studied, and, of course, how much money you have to spend. If money is no object, there are some excellent, but very expensive, schools in Massachusetts.
But if you are on a budget, many less expensive schools offer good value. The state schools, such as UMass, can be very good, depending on which campus you go to, and they are less costly, especially for Massachusetts residents.
I went to college in Mass, as did my 3 sons, so I may be able to give you more info. What major(s) are you interested in?
