A Must Read book for college selections (parents, too!)
Cool Colleges is not only fun to read, it's full of the kind of information I wish I had when I was picking a college! What different choices I might have made... What's the difference between an Ivy League and other top tier universities? How about the Seven Sisters - are they only for women anymore? What schools invite young high school students to go to college instead? What are the top public colleges and universities in the country? Which colleges can you attend for free? What schools have the strongest educational environment, to the point of being called 'short' on social opportunities? Cool Colleges answers these questions, and tons more. And best, it's FUN to read! I couldn't imagine a college selection guide being a 'can't put it down' book... but this is one! They aren't kidding in the subtitle: 'for the Hyper-Intelligent, Self-Directed, Late Blooming, and Just Plain Different.' This book has colleges for all of those, and everyone else, too! Plus lots of college application and life hints: don't take up the credit card companies on their card offers, and get into debt before you even get a job!, do write a good essay, but don't 'borrow' one from the Internet, which majors earn the most (but don't pick just for the money!), and more. And there are even references to other Cool Books to read while selecting your college, including a good traditional college selection guide that lists more than just the basics, a good book to dispel the 20 greatest myths about college, and other good books to help you along the way. Read Cool Colleges first!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
