There is no shortage of college search and college planning websites on the Internet. One good college search website that I've recently learned about is Campus Explorer. Campus Explorer gives prospective students the option to search for colleges by location and or degree/program type. What makes Campus Explorer a potentially valuable resource for those searching for a college is the advice section attached to each college review. The advice appears to be genuine advice from real students. In addition to the advice section, where available, videos are attached to each college's review.
Applications for Education
Campus Explorer could be a good to resource lists for guidance counselors or anyone involved in helping students pick a college.
