The Insider's Guide to the Colleges is the perennial favorite reference book among the country's high school seniors. Honest, forthright, and sometimes irreverent, it is a compilation of thoroughly researched reports on every aspect of college life-from cafeteria food to academics to campus social life. Unlike any other guidebook out there, The Insider's Guide to the Colleges gives prospective college applicants the straight scoop from actual students. Rather than rattling off generic information, these students offer the un-hyped portrait of life at their respective colleges. The Insider's Guide includes:
-Full coverage of more than 300 schools in all 50 states and Canada
-Up-to-date statistics on everything from tuition to acceptance rates to male/female ratio
-A helpful "College Finder" that lets students zero in on the right schools
-Student-to-student advice on choosing a college, getting in, and paying for it
-An "FYI" section at the end of each entry that accurately captures the essence of each school and the kinds of students who go there.
