Then, ideas are given on estimating college expenses and raising funds. The next sections introduce the typical curriculum, general academic expectations, and way of life at Ivy League and Sister Schools. Finally, fifteen schools are profiled with an emphasis on the opportunities for minority students available at each school. Schools included are Barnard College, Brown University, Byrn Mawr College, Columbia University, Cornell University, Dartmouth College, Harvard/Radcliffe College, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Mount Holyoke College, Princeton University, Smith College, University of Pennsylvania, Vassar College, Wellesley College, and Yale University. This section also contains two charts. The first permits a quick comparison of the schools' enrollment, location, and undergraduate curriculum.
