This title introduces some of the factors young people consider as they evaluate their college options. Through articles from a variety of sources, the book provides an overview of practical considerations such as hiring an admissions adviser and making a college visit. It also examines some of the special issues of interest to women, students of color, athletes, and students with special needs. Finally, it offers students alternatives to the traditional college path, including community colleges, gap years, or opting out of college altogether.
"This series presents books that are compilations of articles on topics that can help students make informed decisions about serious issues. Recommendations: I would highly recommend this book/series for middle school and high school collections, as well as public library collections."
