Description

Focusing on how to "Find the Best Colleges for You!," U.S. News & World Report's "Best Colleges 2016" guidebook will guide you through the college-admissions process from SATs and ACTs, through finding (and getting into) your dream college, to financing your education without piling up debt. For more than 30 years, U.S. News' Best Colleges program has been the "gold standard" guide to U.S. colleges. In this edition, education journalists dig into such emerging trends as business schools incorporating more liberal arts courses, big changes coming to the SAT test, and what colleges are doing to prevent sexual violence. Education experts - including a panel of admissions officers - provide advice on planning your college search, including what to say and what not to say on applications and essays. As "USA Today" noted, the guidebook "gathers up all the pertinent information about a college and some of the best advice possible, all in one organized place." A 160-page directory section profiles nearly 1,600 colleges that adMISSION POSSIBLE said is appreciated by college-admissions professionals for the "up-to-date information it provides re median 25th-75th percentile scores for all the colleges in the US, as well as current information on application deadlines, ethnic make-up of the colleges, most popular majors, and expenses for tuition, room and board." And of course there are U.S. News' exclusive rankings, based on extensive data gathering and objective, expert analysis. The rankings highlight various kinds of schools - large national universities and small liberal arts colleges, those with the best undergraduate business and engineering programs, state-supported colleges, "best value" schools, and historically black colleges and universities. Also noted are colleges that excel in such areas as providing internships and undergraduate research - and those where graduates carry the least debt. Other chapters include: -Tame Your Test Anxiety -Is Greek Life Right for You? -A+ Schools for B Students -Consider A Public Honors College -Your College Search To-Do List, starting with freshman year of high school -The Inside Scoop on Financial Aid -Work-study, STEM scholarships, and how to save money on textbooks Note: Much of the information in this book is available nowhere else, in print or online, or is hard to find.
