Cool Colleges for the Hyper-Intelligent, Self-Directed, Late Blooming, and Just Plain Different.
This guide profiles innovative and unusual colleges that might interest the college applicant who is looking for the perfect "fit" and who thinks that "fit" might be met by something different. It also contains information to help the applicant contact other accredited 4-year institutions in the United States and Canada. The chapters are: (1) "Two Prep Colleges"; (2) "The Ivy League and More"; (3) "Schools Where Scholarship Is Honored"; (4) "The Great Books Program"; (5) "Innovative Curricula and Schedules"; (6) "Entrepreneurial Studies"; (7) "The Engineering Schools"; (8) "Flying, Sailing, and Militarizing"; (9) "The Work Colleges"; (10) "More Cool Ideas"; (11) "Men's, Women's, and Minority-Focused Colleges"; (12) "Every Accredited Four-Year Bachelor's Degree-Granting College in the United States and Canada." Although there is a list of free colleges and universities, information is not generally provided about college costs; the aim of the guide is to enable students to find the best possible school "fit."
