In this revised and expanded guide, College Placement Bureau Director Loren Pope profiles forty colleges that excel at developing potential, values, initiative, and risk--taking in a wide range of students. This new edition includes a revised group of colleges and for the first time addresses the issues of home schooling, learning disabilities, and single--sex education. Pope encourages students to be hard--nosed consumers when visiting colleges, and shows how the college experience can enrich every young person's life, whether they are "A," "B," or "C" students.

Included in the profiles are:

• Evaluations of each school's program and "personality"
Interviews with undergraduates, professors, and deans
Information on what happens to the graduates and what they think of their college experience.
