Help in the Hunt for the Perfect College

imagesYour university-bound genius has tackled the SATs and has a GPA that’s nothing to sneeze at.  Now comes the hard part:  finding the perfect college.  You’ve pored over all the well-known guides and narrowed your choice down to an unmanageable 50 or 60 schools.  Sure, name brand universities and an accessible location are a nice start, but how will you know which school will be the right fit for your kid?  Will she be happier at College A or College B?  Help is available at InsideCollege.com.

InsideCollege.com is a vast database of schools that allows users to search through hundreds of lists tailored to specialized interests.

Lists vary from targeting the masses (“Colleges That Have a Relatively Low Cost”) to, well, focusing on a smaller demographic (“I Want to Be a Doctor But Wait…I Forgot to Take Science!”).

For a kick, look up your own alma mater.  My university is listed under both “Schools Where Mormons Feel Comfortable” and “Colleges with Strength in Men’s Water Polo”.  Who knew?
