The only guide written and researched by students for students, The Insider's Guide to the Colleges is the essential handbook for high school seniors who are deciding where to continue their education. This compilation of thoroughly researched reports tackles every aspect of college existence, from classes and teaching methods to campus social life and cafeteria food. Hundreds of students are interviewed during the writing process, giving a truly revealing look into the life of an average student at each school. Unlike any other college guide, The Insider's Guide goes beyond the usual generic information to provide the un-hyped portrait of college life straight from the students who live it.
The Insider's Guide to the Colleges features:
* 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," which lets students zero in on the right schools for them
* Student-to-student advice on choosing a college, getting in, and paying for it
* An "FYI" section at the end of each entry that captures the true essence of each school and the kind of students who go there
