Synopsis

College rankings are irresistible and inescapable. Each year, a glut of publications seduces the entire nation with false assumptions that mislead parents and students and manipulate the entire college admissions landscape. Students have nowhere to turn except to publications that offer eye-catching gimmicks and easy sound bites like "Best Party Schools." "Most Wired Colleges," and "America's Best Colleges." By moving beyond rankings to how and what students need to learn on the 21st century campus. College Rankings Exposed offers a revolutionary philosophy that propels today's students toward choosing a college experience that answers to their own calling. While there is no simple answer to the question. "Where should I go to college?" College Rankings Exposed is the ultimate, long-awaited response to this illegitimate hijacking of the college planning and admissions process. Author Paul Boyer empowers students and parents to conduct a genuine college search, encouraging them to ask the hard questions and providing true instruction on the art of getting a quality education.
