In the three editions in which it has appeared during the last five years, the ISI college guide has served as an essential reference resource for prospective students and their parents. Unlike other college guides, which too often read like paraphrases of university public-relations brochures, Choosing the Right College is an independently researched and written volume that covers the things that matter most, such as core curricula, campus crime, student living arrangements, the quality of teaching and student advising, and freshman orientation. The guide also provides specific advice on which professors to seek out and which courses and departments to avoid.
