Book News Annotation:

Howard Greene, an educational consultant and former admissions officer at Princeton U., and Matthew Greene, an educational director who has taught and advised students at the U. of Colorado at Boulder, draw from their counseling experience, and surveys and interviews with students, college presidents, deans, and other administrators, to present 50 liberal arts colleges and universities that rival Ivy League schools (20 more than the previous edition), such as Amherst, Boston College, Bryn Mawr, Claremont-McKenna, Duke, Georgetown, Johns Hopkins, Northwestern, the U. of Notre Dame, Pomona College, Oberlin, the U. of Southern California, Tufts, Vassar, and Wesleyan. They describe why these institutions are of exceptional merit, and their curriculum, admissions requirements, student perspectives, and graduate rates and employment. Additional chapters address the importance of a liberal arts education, advice from parents and students, and what makes an Ivy League school.
