    An Outstanding Quick Reference

    Nothing in the college search and selection process will ever take the place of visiting a campus, taking a tour, talking with students and admissions staff, siting in on a class, staying overnight in a dorm, walking the surrouding neighborhood (if there is one), or browsing in the campus bookstore. But this book provides very quick and easy reference to the basic facts that will help you narrow down your college search. How big is the undergraduate population? What's the male/female ratio? What percentage of applicants is admitted? Where do most of the students score on the SAT/ACT, and where were most of the students in their high-school classes? What are the particular strengths of the college? What are the costs? How serious are the students about studying? About partying? How much drinking goes on? The Princeton Review gives you the basic information about all of these topics. Of course not every school is covered (just 368), but most of the large state universities and smaller private schools you would be likely to consider as an out-of-state student are included. Most people can easily visit branches of the state university system or nearby community colleges and get a good idea of what it's like to go there. This book seems primarily useful to help you narrow down the choices for schools across the country, or 500 miles up (or down) the coast, to help you decide whether it's worth making the effort to look further into them.

    The organization couldn't be simpler or more logical. Two pages per school. Interested in Northwestern? The schools are listed alphabetically, so just thumb through the book until you get to the "N's" and there it is. (This takes a little bit longer for the state universities, many of which are listed as "University of ....") Considering the amount you're likely to spend on a college education (plus the fact that it will be four years of your life), this book is an incredible investment. If it saves you the cost of gas for one trip to one school you realize you really wouldn't like it will pay for itself, and if it points you to a school that will eventually change your life then it will be invaluable.
