What makes The Best 345 Colleges the most talked-about college guide? We ask only college students (over 100,000 of them - more than ever before) what their colleges are like, and the revealing results are in this book. Our complete profiles cover the entire school, from classes to financial aid to social life. We provide all the basics: admissions criteria, deadlines, phone numbers, e-mail and campus addresses. Our unique rankings in over 60 categories rate colleges on academics, political learning, quality of life, cafeteria food, dormitories, social life, and much more, including a brand-new category that will tell you which schools provide the most academic bang for your buck.Franek, Robert is the author of 'Best 345 Colleges 2003' with ISBN 9780375762550 and ISBN 0375762558.
