"Worth a look, if you're headed for college or getting ready to apply."—
San Diego Union Tribune

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. 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.
