Think you can't get into a great college? Think again!

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. 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. 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.
