Colleges with best return on investment that accept CLEP

A colleague of mine at Examiner.com just wrote the article Smart Money magazine ranks colleges with "payback ratio"

As many homeschoolers take CLEP exams in high school to put a few credits under their belt and to prove their worth, I thought I would compare this list to the list of CLEP colleges. The number in parenthesis is return on investment.

University of Georgia(338%) YES
Texas A&M (315%)YES
University of Texas yes
Austin (306%) yES, WITH FEES
Georgia Tech (263%) yes
