While every parent would like to see his or
her child head off to Harvard, Princeton,
Yale or Columbia, the reality is that very few
students are Ivy League material. Many
parents overestimate or simply neglect to
evaluate their child’s academic qualifications.
150 Great Colleges for Mid-Range Students
is designed to help parents and their children
realistically assess the child’s scholastic
ability and select the most suitable college.
The book:

  • Defines just who the average or
    mid-range student is
  • Uses clear criteria for the selection
    of the 150 best mid-range colleges
  • Provides detailed descriptions of all
    the featured colleges

Bad matches between colleges and students
have led to a 30 percent freshman dropout
rate and an even higher percentage of transfers
and delayed graduations. 150 Great
Colleges for Everyday Students equips
parents and students with the information
they need to make the right decision.
