Here is our recommendation for sites and books that everyone going through the college search process should be aware of. Many of these sites have tools that are indispensable for the search, and they'll give you plenty of information to help you conduct your own research. It's important to find a combination of sites that work for you, because no one site will have all of the information you need. Mix and match the facts you get from each to get a real picture of what it will be like to attend a specific university.
I have known Debra Felix for almost 30 years, beginning when she was the Director of MBA admissions at Columbia University’s Business School and I was in admissions at Wharton. I can say with confidence that Deb is one of the most conscientious, fair, kind-hearted people I know. She is testament to the philosophy that giving the best of yourself can be the most effective way to help others be their best, too. Deb’s client-centered approach serves applicants extraordinarily well.
