Brief Description of the Site:
Too bad this site (and the Internet) didn't exist when most of us were still high school juniors. It's a listing of 3000+ colleges and universities in the U.S. plus Canada, the Caribbean, Guam, and Puerto Rico. Suppose back in those days a friend had said "how about Bay State in Massachusetts?" Had this site existed you would have clicked on the "Massachusetts" button, opening a page of links for every college in that state, located Bay State (it's in Boston), and clicked - thus arriving at Bay State's home page, where you could learn about the college and its specialties (it's a private two-year college geared to help students enter business, health, or fashion areas). The site also has helpful links for college planning, including a timeline for one's junior and senior high school years, how to line up letters of recommendation, etc.

How to use the site:
Obviously college and career counselors would want to recommend this site to their clients. Teachers seeking engaging term-paper projects could assign students to compare/contrast the colleges in a particular state, or in several states. For example, students in Minnesota would probably find it eye-opening to compare the various offerings of Minnesota State with the University of Minnesota. They could also evaluate the offerings of their state's schools with those of neighboring states.
