For more than thirty-five years, The Insider's Guide to the Colleges has been the favorite resource of high school students across the country because it is the only comprehensive college reference researched and written by students for students. In interviews with hundreds of peers on campuses from New York to Hawaii and Florida to Alaska, our writers have sought out the inside scoop at every school on everything from the nightlife and professors to the newest dorms and wildest student organizations. In addition to the in-depth profiles of college life, this 37th edition has been revised and updated to include: * Essential statistics for every school, from acceptance rates to the most popular majors * A "College Finder" to help students zero in on the perfect school * Insider's packing list detailing what every college student really needs to bring * FYI sections with student opinions and outrageous off-the-cuff advice. The Insider's Guide to the Colleges cuts through the piles of brochures to get to the things that matter most to students, and by staying on top of trends and attitudes it delivers the straight talk students and parents need to choose the school that's the best fit.

The #1 book on sports scholarships, completely updated and revised! $1 billion of athletic scholarships are awarded each year But student-athletes who aren't big-time recruits miss out on tens of thousands of dollars of financial aid available to them. The problem is students and parents don't know where the money is or how to get it. Discover the secrets to getting a sports scholarship Over seventeen hundred colleges offer athletic programs. Over 500,000 athletes participate in sports in the nation's college programs. But less than 1% (about 4,000) of them get Division I, full-ride financial aid grants. The truth is: 80% of all college athletic opportunities are located outside Division I! But to seize those opportunities, you must take control of your own recruiting process—recruiting, research and homework, exposure and promotion, and negotiating—all in the environment of a high-stakes contest where only the opposition knows the rules. This book will give you the edge. If you aren't one of the 4,000, but are athletically and academically qualified to participate in college sports, The Sports Scholarships Insider's Guide will lead you step by step through the twists, turns, and all too often unpleasant surprises to achieve your ultimate goal of a roster position and financial aid for your athletic ability. "Practical, step-by-step information in a clear and conversational manner." School Library Journal Dion Wheeler, former coach and recruiting consultant, gives students and their parents the inside edge to not only find great scholarships, but get the best offer no matter what their skill level.
