A college degree has never been more important—or more expensive. If you're not made of money, where can you get an amazing liberal arts education without your parents having to remortgage the house or cash in their retirement fund? Which degrees will allow you to fulfill your dreams and earn a decent paycheck? What do you really need to know if you're the first in your family to go to college? How do you find good schools that offer a well-rounded campus life for black or Latino students? From the staff of Washington Monthly comes a new kind of college guide, inspired by and including the magazine's signature alternative college rankings. The Other College Guide features smartly designed, engaging chapters on finding the best-fit schools and the real deal about money, loans, and preparing for the world of work. This essential higher ed handbook also highlights information on what to look for (and watch out for) in online programs and for-profit colleges and concludes with fifty profiles of remarkable but frequently overlooked schools. All things being unequal, The Other College Guide will provide American students—and their families and school counselors—with the honest and practical information they need to make sense of the college process and carve a path to the future they imagine.

The college gates swing open for the privileged few. Preferential treatment is given to donors, children of alumni, athletes, international students, and affirmative action applicants. Others slide past the gatekeepers with the help of exorbitantly priced consultants, tutors, private coaches, and even essay writers. The rejected remain stranded on the outside, clinging to the same well-worn and ineffective tactics for college admissions. Enough is enough. Breaking Into College is the underground playbook many have leveraged to pry open the entrance to America's most selective colleges. You deserve the same opportunity.

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.

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.

The race to matriculate into the most-prestigious-university-possible is killing America's students. There is a better way! Admissions by Design is a poignant, unorthodox, and thorough guide that upends the traditional paradigm of college admissions. Incorporating the latest research in brain science and human development and using stories from her nearly 20 years of work with students, Lisa Fisher offers students practical tools to reframe the college admissions process to one of an inspired and authentic journey toward self-discovery. Building from the root of the word “admission,” meaning “toward purpose,” and tying the college admissions process to the development of self and to emerging trends in economic development, the author argues that the admissions process shouldn’t be about getting into a prestigious “name” school, but about a journey to knowing one’s self, heeding one’s callings, and identifying the “right fit” school that will serve as the catalyst to embracing a purpose-led life. Presenting facts and details about the ways in which the current system of college admissions negatively impacts students, the author challenges prevailing methods and offers new ideas and solutions to reinvent the approach to college admissions to be more humanistic and student-centered. This practical guide challenges students to define and pursue their unique paths and offers hands-on tools to help students in their process of self-discovery and in identifying and applying to the “right fit” college.
