A good resource is the paperback put out by US News & World Report each year. It is about $10. About half of it is basic info on about 1500 colleges and universities. Also there are several practical pullouts in it--a 4 year calendar which tells you month by month what your student should be doing and there is an applications checklist.

I wish I had had one. I found this in DD's trashcan when she left for college.

I doubt the issue changes too much from year to year --costs go up, of course, and the rankings may slightly shift, but the basics of the book--getting into and paying for college --probably remains the same.


BTW, if your student visits a college and has an interview, I recommend he send a thank you letter to the interviewer and anyone else who may have helped him with his inquiry.
