The Straight-Talking Student's Guide to the Best Colleges in the US
With this new edition, The Insider's Guide to the Colleges has been, for 40 years, the most relied-upon resource for high school students looking for honest reports on USA colleges from their fellow students.
Having interviewed hundreds of their peers on more than 330 university and college campuses, and by getting the inside scoop on everything from the nightlife and professors to the newest dorms and wildest student organizations, the reporters at the Yale Daily News have created the most candid college choice guide available. In addition to the well-rounded profiles, this edition has been updated to include:
Essential statistics for every school, from acceptance rates to popular majors
A "College Finder" to help students pick the perfect school
FYI sections with student opinions and outrageous off-the-cuff advice, to further help in college selection.
The Insider's Guide to the Colleges cuts through the glossy college brochures to get to the things that matter most to students trying to select a college, and by staying on top of trends, it gives those students and their parents the straightforward information they need to choose the school that's right for them.
