Up-to-date information on enrollments, tuition and fees, academic programs, campus environment, available financial aid, and much more, combine to make 27th edition of "Profiles of American Colleges" America's most authoritative source for information on colleges and universities. College-bound students, parents, and high school guidance councilors will find information on more than 1,650 accredited four-year colleges across the United States. A CD-ROM enclosed with each copy of this comprehensive directory presents an interactive format and lets students find individual schools by entering specific criteria. In addition to the above-cited information, each college profile gives details on admission requirements, library and computer facilities, athletic facilities, extracurricular activities, e-mail addresses, fax numbers, web sites, and more. Schools are rated according to Barron's famous competitiveness scale, from "Noncompetitive" to "Most Competitive." The book's extra section of tinted pages presents a complete, quick-reference Index of College Majors, listing all available major study programs at each school.
Also profiled are many of the best-known colleges in Canada and several other countries.
