Searching For Schools

NAME/WEB ADDRESS and COMMENTS

ONLINE

COLLEGE BOARD ONLINE (www.collegeboard.org): From the SAT people, an excellent site on precollege testing, paying for college, and advice on choosing a school. Great first site to visit.

PRINCETON REVIEW (www.review.com): Search engine lets you comb its database for schools that match your preferences; gives student opinions and other subjective data on more than 300 top colleges.

PETERSON'S EDUCATION CENTER (www.petersons.com): Besides a good search engine, has interesting essays on topics such as the parent's role in the school search and how to write a college essay.

ADVENTURES IN EDUCATION (www.tgslc.org): Texas Guaranteed Student Loan Corp. site has great general information about college and careers; separate areas customized for parents and students.


SOFTWARE

COLLEGE ADVISOR '97 (Princeton Review Publishing/$19.95): Good all-around program; features strong college search engine, opinions on individual schools, links to college home pages, and help on letter-writing.

COLLEGE EDGE (Snap Technologies $49.99): Uninspired college search engine, but good information and interviews about career choices and college majors for kids who are undecided.
