Synopses & Reviews
For more than thirty years, The Insider's Guide to the Colleges has been the favorite resource of high school seniors across the country, because it is the only comprehensive college reference written and researched by students for students. In interviews with hundreds of peers on campuses all over the country, our writers have gotten the inside scoop on every school--on topics from professors and campus life to dorms and student activities. Each school profile in The Insider's Guide cuts through the veneer of brochures and common stereotypes to reveal the college as it's seen through the eyes of its students. This comprehensive guide includes: -Revealing profiles of 320 top schools in the United States and Canada-Essential statistics for every school, from acceptance rate to the most popular majors-A "College Finder" that helps students find the schools that are right for them-"FYI" sections with candid student opinions and outrageous advice
"Savvy parents and students hold this book to be a must-read."--New York Daily News "Who better to tell prospective students about life at college than current students"--Boston Herald "The granddaddy of the student-to-student genre."--The New York Times "Invaluable in choosing and getting into a college."--Chicago Tribune
Updated for 2006, this college guide gives student-to-student advice on choosing a college, getting in, and paying for it.
