More than 70 of the most academically competitive four-year colleges in the United States are described in detail, each entry written by a recent graduate of that school. The book’s personalized entries offer insights that readers aren’t likely to find in other college directories, such as first-hand descriptions of campus environment, social life and activities, and nearby off-campus activities and points of interest. Each college profile also includes the standard “need-to-know” facts and figures, such as admission requirements, academic programs, tuitions and fees, application procedures, sources of financial aid, library and research facilities, student body composition, and admission contacts. Not every aspiring student can get into America’s most competitive colleges, and this book also suggests application strategies, study strategies, essay-writing strategies, and financing strategies designed to help students gain admission. Also featured is a Most Competitive Comparison Chart that presents at-a-glance statistics for each school.
