The Insider's Guide to the Colleges, 2012
Students on Campus Tell You What You Really Want to Know, 38th Edition
Author: Compiled and Edited by the Staff of the Yale Daily News
The Insider's Guide to the Colleges has been, for 38 years, the most relied-upon resource for high school students looking for honest reports on colleges from their fellow students.
Having interviewed hundreds of their peers on more than 330 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 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 zero in on the perfect school
* FYI sections with student opinions and outrageous off-the-cuff advice
The Insider's Guide to the Colleges cuts through the college brochures to uncover the things that matter most to students, and by staying on top of trends, it gives both students and parents the straightforward information they need to choose the school that's right for them.
