Guide to the Most Competitive Colleges (Paperback)
Updated with the latest facts, figures, fees, and insights from recent graduates, this book presents detailed descriptions of more than 80 of the most academically challenging and prestigious four-year colleges across the United States. Here is information that never appears in ordinary college directories, including insiders' assessments of campus environments and nearby off-campus social and cultural facilities that are available to students. Each school profile also includes the standard "need-to-know" information, such as admission requirements, academic programs, student body composition, student-teacher ratios, library and research facilities, tuitions and related expenses, sources of financial aid, and more. The book's highly detailed Most Competitive Comparison Chart provides at-a-glance statistics that will help readers assess the merits of each school and estimate their own chances for acceptance. This directory is a "must-read" information source for high-achieving high school students and their parents. It's also a book that deserves a prominent place on the reference shelf of every high school student counselor.
