Summary
Over the past decade, Choosing the Right College has established itself as the indispensable resource for students - and parents - who want the unvarnished truth about America's top colleges and universities. It is the most in-depth, independently researched college guide on the market, using on-campus sources to turn up the best - and worst - aspects of nearly 150 schools. Just as important, Choosing the Right College covers the intellectual, political, and social conditions that really matter, including: - The integrity and rigor of the curriculum - Which courses and professors to take - and which to avoid - The prevalence of politics in the classroom and the state of free speech - all highlighted with ISI's unique "traffic light" - Living arrangements, safety, and other keys to student life - How to get a real education at any school. Beyond all that, this brand-new edition of Choosing the Right College features a host of innovations, including: "So You're Looking For...," top-five lists of colleges for all types of students; a quick list of each school's strengths and weaknesses; an insider's look at the pros and cons of online education; and more. This new edition of Choosing the Right College also provides the financial information families need in this age of soaring tuition. What are the most overpriced colleges - and which are relatively good values? What is the average student-debt load? To cap it all off, Choosing the Right College introduces the groundbreaking feature "Blue Collar Ivies" - in-depth reports on the best affordable colleges in all fifty states. Choosing the Right College 2014-15 will completely change the way young people make a life-altering decision
