Book Description

From School Library Journal YA-Pope discusses 40 colleges, mostly in the Northeast, South, and Midwest. What makes this book different from other guides is that it highlights schools that select students who have a wide range of abilities, not necessarily the cream of the crop academically, but who exhibit a desire to learn. The atmosphere at these institutions is collaborative rather than competitive and they feature close interaction between students and faculty. Antioch University, Grinnell College, Whitman College, and Goucher College are among the schools included. Overviews of academic standings, admission requirements, quotes by faculty and students, points of geographic interest, and strengths in relation to other schools are given for each selection.-Rebecca C.
