The Insider's Guide to the Colleges, 2011

Students on Campus Tell You What You Really Want to Know, 37th Edition

Compiled and Edited by the Staff of the Yale Daily News

St. Martin's Griffin



For more than thirty-five years, The Insider's Guide to the Colleges has been the favorite resource of high school students across the country because it is the only comprehensive college reference researched and written by students for students. In interviews with hundreds of peers on campuses from New York to Hawaii and Florida to Alaska, our writers have sought out the inside scoop at every school on everything from the nightlife and professors to the newest dorms and wildest student organizations.

In addition to the in-depth profiles of college life, this 37th edition has been revised and updated to include:

* Essential statistics for every school, from acceptance rates to the most popular majors
* A "College Finder" to help students zero in on the perfect school
* Insider's packing list detailing what every college student really needs to bring
* FYI sections with student opinions and outrageous off-the-cuff advice.

The Insider's Guide to the Colleges cuts through the piles of brochures to get to the things that matter most to students, and by staying on top of trends and attitudes it delivers the straight talk students and parents need to choose the school that's the best fit.
