Description
"Offering step-by-step, practical tips, the book walks the student (and his or her parents) through the major "moments" of the college selection process: learning about the kinds of college, devising a coherent initial list, sizing up the curricula and programs of study, planning and carrying out an informative tour of the colleges, constructing a unified and compelling application, obtaining and evaluating financial aid offers, and making a final choice that will match the student's abilities and interests to what the college has to offer.
