Format: Paperback
"Peterson's Four Year Colleges - 2014 Edition" (1,842 pages, which is virtually unchanged from last year's edition) is still basically 2 books in 1. The first 1,000 pages or so (called "College Profiles") provide the 'hard cold facts', presenting a very short summary of about 2,500 four year colleges around the US. Not sure how in the book's introduction they write that "College Profiles" provide a complete picture of need-to-know information about accredited four year colleges. Do the math: 2,500 profiles in 1,000 pages... But helpful is that the colleges are lumped state-by-state, because, let's face it, most college students remain in their home state. Annoyingly, ads for colleges now appear in this section, something this book started last year, I guess they need the advertizing money.

The second part of the book (called "College Close Ups") is a more in-depth (two pages) profile of about 350 colleges. It is important to understand that those in-depth profiles are NOT written up by the book's editors, but instead provided by the colleges themselves (and the colleges are paying for this placement). Hence no profile this year on American University or Georgetown, but GW has one. The third and last part of the book is about 200 pages of various "Indexes", mostly majors (which is VERY helpful if you are into a specific area of interest--as an example, you can major in "Swedish" in only 1 college in the country, namely BYU), as well as by entrance difficulty and cost ranges.

I am most familiar with schools in DC (where I went myself as well as my youngest one) and Ohio (where I live and my oldest one went), so I very carefully reviewed those chapters.

Extremely helpful in identifying Colleges of interest to our High School Senior. The descriptions of the Colleges & Universities were all in align with the actual information presented while physically touring the facilities. Well worth the purchase price!
