This book starts you at square one: before you know what questions to ask, what colleges to read about, or what statistics to look up. Sowell pulls no punches as he candidly describes the inner and outer workings of scores of American colleges and universities, big and small. He gives equal attention to special programs, financial aid, and the academic environment.

Editorial Reviews

“In no uncertain terms Sowell reminds academicians that some ‘interdisciplinary fields’ have disintegrated into ‘rap sessions’ devoid of discipline. Choosing a College should be required reading for every college-bound person. The book is an eye opener even for college-wise educators.”
