Fully revised since the first edition, COOL COLLEGES covers the most exciting schools in the U.S. and Canada, with a new chapter on eco schools, an update on tuition-free schools, and the total low-down on the so-called top-ranked schools. Are you hyper-intelligent? Self-directed? A late-bloomer? Or just different? Then you need a great school that will challenge, nurture, inspire, and motivate you-and COOL COLLEGES has got '¬?em. It will also give you the scoop on: What the Ivy league is and what it really wants Totally free schools, including one where financial need is a requirement for admission Universities that don'¬?t give grades Schools that don'¬?t want your SAT scores Data on the highest (and lowest) paying majors The schools that graduate the most millionaires Men'¬?s, women'¬?s, and minority-focused colleges Schools where you can design your own degree program A college where you can hike and camp your way to a degree A college that runs its own ranch on an 80-square-mile campus Science and engineering schools where undergrads get their own labs The most competitive colleges, including one that rejects 95% of applicants Campuses where students love to study, even on Saturday nights Schools that offer programs in computer game studies, comedy, auctioneering, special-effects makeup, and more Plus a link to the Web addresses for every college and university in the United States and Canada.COOL COLLEGES is the resource for finding your dream school-and gives you the edge you'¬?ll need to get accepted. Reviews"Worth a look, if you'¬?re headed for college or getting ready to apply."-San Diego Union Tribune I received a used copy of your book, Cool Colleges (2nd Edition) in the mail this morning and (admittedly) out of vague interest and the slight boredom that comes with not having a driver's license, I picked it up and went about my usual hole-up-in-my-bedroom-with-new-book-and-blinds-down-and-stay-holed-until-I-have-finished-the-text-in-it's-entirety routine. The purpose of this message is to express my nearly inexpressible gratitude to you and your associates in research. I have read life-changing books, articles, and speeches but I have never, not once, been so deeply affected by a work of this type: A guidebook? I have perused U.S. News & World Report's 2007 College Guide and the Newsweek/Kaplan 2007 College Guide, each with their individual talents and faults, but your book was different. For once I felt like the book was directed to students such as myself. I'm not an athlete and I'm no an academic superstar: at my school, that's what it takes to be a favorite. I am just another mediocre teenager in millions who wants to save the world. Your book made me feel, for once, as though someone was looking at those of us hanging by our fingernails on the edge of being completely lost in our distinction. I love to learn for the sake of learning and not because I'm aiming for any star-studded diplomas or accreditations, but because there is so much to learn. Your book not only allowed me to see that there were other "Lost Kids" (that's what my guidance counselor called me) but further that there were places trying to find us because we aren't as lost as some of our superiors like to think. Again Sir, thank you for all your work. It has not gone unnoticed nor was it in vain. If nothing else, you made at least one girl's life (and future) a little brighter. -Carina, 17St. Petersburg, FL From the Trade Paperback edition.

Acceptance by a top college is more than a gold star on a high school graduate's forehead today. It has morphed into the ultimate "good parenting" stamp of approval--the better the bumper sticker, the better the parent, right? Parents of juniors and seniors in high school fret over SAT scores and essays, obsessed with getting their kids into the right college, while their children push for independence. I'm Going to College---Not You! is a resource for parents, written by parents who've been in their shoes. Kenyon College dean Jennifer Delahunty shares her unique perspective (and her daughter's) on one of the toughest periods of parenting, and has assembled a top-notch group of writers that includes best-selling authors, college professors and admissions directors, and journalists. Their experiences with the difficult balancing act between control freak and resource answer questions like: --how can a parent be less of a "helicopter" (hovering) and more of a "booster rocket" (uplifting)? --what do you do when your child wants to put off college to become a rock star? and --how will you keep from wanting to kill each other? Contributors include: Jane Hamilton David Latt Neal Pollack Joe Queenan Anne Roark Debra Shaver Anna Quindlen Ellen Waterston

In the fall of 1999, New York Times education reporter Jacques Steinberg was given an unprecedented opportunity to observe the admissions process at prestigious Wesleyan University. Over the course of nearly a year, Steinberg accompanied admissions officer Ralph Figueroa on a tour to assess and recruit the most promising students in the country. The Gatekeepers follows a diverse group of prospective students as they compete for places in the nation's most elite colleges. The first book to reveal the college admission process in such behind-the-scenes detail, The Gatekeepers will be required reading for every parent of a high school-age child and for every student facing the arduous and anxious task of applying to college. "[The Gatekeepers] provides the deep insight that is missing from the myriad how-to books on admissions that try to identify the formula for getting into the best colleges...I really didn't want the book to end." —The New York Times

Follow Your Interests to Find the Right College is a different sort of college guide -- one that helps students and their families better understand the vast amount of options available for college based on a student's interests. Topics in this comprehensive, easy-to-understand guide include, but are not limited to: • the argument for liberal arts • college degrees programs in Canada, UK, Australia, and beyond • art and architecture programs • business • equine-related opportunities • engineering • health care majors • Ivy League • benefits of public liberal arts colleges and university honors programs • armed service academies • environmentally-oriented colleges and programs • faith-based colleges And much more…. Students, parents, and college advisers will appreciate the vast amount of information presented and synthesized in this user-friendly format. Even the most college-savvy reader can turn to the well-researched, thoughtful chapters on almost every academic or social area as well as advice on broader college-related topics, such as financing college and advice for home-schooled students. By providing and interpreting vast amounts of data not collectively available online or in other guidebooks, each chapter provides both an overview and fine detail for a wide variety of subjects. Using this book as a starting point, parents and advisers can quickly increase their knowledge in a given area and be ready to help students explore options with confidence, while also making the best use of their time. Once you know what you want in a college, you can evaluate the best way, from an admissions strategy, to get there. Until you know what you want, however, it doesn't make sense to jump into the application game. Your admissions plan could be very different from your friends' based on what you actually want to get out of your college experience. Knowing the options and figuring out the best ones for you will make you, your child, or your student a smarter, more strategic, and more confident college applicant.

Over the last few decades, Americans have turned college admissions into a terrifying and occasionally devastating process, preceded by test prep, tutors, all sorts of stratagems, all kinds of rankings, and a conviction among too many young people that their futures will be determined and their worth established by which schools say yes and which say no. That belief is wrong. It's cruel. And in WHERE YOU GO IS NOT WHO YOU'LL BE, Frank Bruni explains why, giving students and their parents a new perspective on this brutal, deeply flawed competition and a path out of the anxiety that it provokes. Bruni, a bestselling author and a columnist for the New York Times, shows that the Ivy League has no monopoly on corner offices, governors' mansions, or the most prestigious academic and scientific grants. Through statistics, surveys, and the stories of hugely successful people who didn't attend the most exclusive schools, he demonstrates that many kinds of colleges-large public universities, tiny hideaways in the hinterlands-serve as ideal springboards. And he illuminates how to make the most of them. What matters in the end are a student's efforts in and out of the classroom, not the gleam of his or her diploma. Where you go isn't who you'll be. Americans need to hear that-and this indispensable manifesto says it with eloquence and respect for the real promise of higher education.
