this book sucks. i bought this book, and of course it had none of the information i needed, and it didn't even have all the colleges i wanted to look up!
My oldest son and I got this book when he was a junior -- a friend recommended it. We were so pleased with it! It has terrific 1-1&1/2 page articles on the large and small colleges and universities, with thumbnail guides on the facts, most popular majors, financial info, websites, etc. along the side of the page. Most importantly, it has interviews from students and sometimes even professors about academic life, dorm life, student activities, etc. -- it makes each one sound very real to the teenager trying to figure it all out and the parent who is wading thru this process for the first time. Best of all, at the end of each article, you get not only application information but also a list of comparable schools -- very useful if you want to think outside the box and consider those which aren't in the 'mainstream'...
