    One Reply to “Colleges That Change Lives: 40 Schools You Should Know About Even If You're Not a Straight-A Student”

    1. This is my very tattered, very beloved book. Whenever I feel down or discouraged about some obstacle (usually education wise) I'd just pop open this book and get inspired.

    2. This book has been on my “meaning to read” shelf for nearly 20 years, and I finally got around to it, long after it had any relevance for me or any of my children. Why now? In the previous book I read, I found out that Loren Pope as a young $25/week copy editor for a Washington daily paper convinced Frank Lloyd Wright to design a house for him. Such is the life of a reader, illustrative of the twists and turns my own education took.Despite the lack of immediate relevance, I’m glad I read i [...]

    3. Very helpful. Gave me a starting point to find colleges that would be a good fit for my son, who is a very smart B-B+ student. About half the colleges on his list to apply to next year were from this book. It also served as a catalyst to other smaller residential colleges I found I liked just as well, with similar methods and principals. Not for the parent/child who is looking for a large research university or rah rah football/basketball powerhouse, but definitely one for looking for a well rou [...]

    4. The introduction is really worth reading if you are a high school student or parent of a high school student. The profiles of the 40 colleges is informative, detailed, and useful. There are schools on his list that I wouldn't have considered recommending to Emma before, but now I think we'll take a second look!

    5. A great book for anyone with high school students. I don't know if such small schools will be a good fit for my child, but it is good to consider all of them going into this process.

    6. Very useful book, especially for those who think of college as more than just job-preparation, but as preparation for leading a full, examined life.

    7. Do I have to admit that this is what I've been reading. Would much rather be reading historical romance novels, but my daughter needs some direction and this seems like a good Starr.
