Overview

Touted by nationally syndicated columnist Thomas Sowell as "by far the best college guide in America," ISI's Choosing the Right College: The Whole Truth about America's Top Schools serves as an essential reference for prospective students and their parents. Unlike other college guides, which too often read like jumbles of statistics laced with quotes from university public-relations brochures, Choosing the Right College is independently researched and written by journalists and scholars, and covers the things that truly matter most: the presence or absence of a core curriculum, the strength of distribution requirements, the prevalence of politics in the classroom, the state of free speech on campus, student living arrangements, the quality of teaching and student advising, crime, and freshman orientation. The ISI guide also provides specific advice on which professors to seek out-and which courses and departments to avoid. An annual publication, the 2006 edition of Choosing the Right College has been thoroughly revised to reflect the ongoing changes and the impact of significant controversies at each of the more than 130 featured colleges and universities-including new entries on the U.S. service academies and Southern Methodist University. And, as an exclusive feature, Choosing the Right College advises students which courses they should take at each school to provide themselves with a true core curriculum. This unique build-your-own-core feature is one more reason that Choosing the Right College has become the most valuable and trusted college guide on the market for students seeking a genuine liberal education.
