The nation’s most academically competitive four-year colleges receive detailed descriptions and appraisals in this updated book, each entry written by a recent graduate of the school. Here are insights that simply aren’t available in ordinary college directories, including insiders’ assessments of campus environment, social life, and nearby off-campus activities that are of interest to students. Each profile also includes the standard “need-to-know” facts and figures, such as admission requirements, academic programs, up-to-date tuitions and fees, application procedures, sources of financial aid, library and research facilities, student body composition, and admission contacts. Because these schools are highly competitive, they are necessarily selective. This book suggests strategies to help prospective students gain admission and continue on to graduation. They include application strategies, study strategies, essay-writing strategies, and financing strategies. A detail-filled Most Competitive Comparison Chart offers at-a-glance statistics to help readers compare each college. High school student counselors will value this comprehensive directory as a vital addition to their reference shelf. High-achieving high school students and their parents will also turn to this book when seeking information on America’s very best colleges and universities. Approximately 70 leading colleges are individually described in this directory. --Publisher description
