What Makes Fiske Guide College Ratings Different?
Since 1982, the Fiske Guide to Colleges has been conducting in-depth evaluations and student satisfaction surveys on the top colleges and universities. It has developed one of the most comprehensive collegiate databases available, and the only one including real feedback from students and schools then filtered through the eyes of Edward B. Fiske, former education editor of the NYT and a pioneer in the study of higher education. The independent, advertisement-free annual guide has become a standard part of college admissions literature and is now the country’s best-selling college guide.
