  • The groundbreaking guide to the 40 best colleges you've never heard of—colleges that will change your life

    Choosing the right college has never been more important—or more difficult. For the latest edition of this classic
    college guide, Hilary Masell Oswald conducted her own tours of top schools and in-depth interviews, building on Loren
    Pope's original to create a totally updated, more expansive work. Organized by geographic region, every profile includes
    a wealth of vital information, including admissions standards, distinguishing facts about the curriculum,
    extracurricular activities, and what faculty say about their jobs. Masell Oswald also offers a new chapter on how
    students with learning disabilities can find schools that fit their needs. For every prospective college student
    searching for more than football and frat parties, Colleges That Change Lives will prove indispensable.

    Fully revised and updated by education journalist Hilary Oswald, Colleges That Change Lives remains the definite guide
    for high school students (and their parents) who are looking for more in their college education than football, frat
    parties, and giant lectures. Building on the foundation of landmark author Loren Pope, Oswald spent more than a year
    visiting 40 colleges, speaking with students, faculty, and alumni to create these vivid and concise portraits.

    Featuring a new introduction, a new Required Reading section, and a new chapter on learning disabilities, the book is
    organized into five geographic regions (Northeast, South, Midwest, Southwest, Northwest) to make for easy browsing, and
    urban, suburban, and rural campuses are all featured. There’s also an alphabetical index of colleges. Each profile
    includes admissions standards as well as relevant statistics to make your decision easier, including where the school
    ranks in post-graduate grants and fellowships, what percentage of students go on to graduate school or further
    education, distinguishing facts about the curriculum, percentage of professors who have terminal degrees in their field,
    even what activities are available to students and what they’re likely to do on weekends.
