The Hidden Ivies by Howard Greene and Matthew Greene

the-hidden-iviesThis book focuses on liberal arts colleges and universities that are of comparable quality to the Ivies. Based on surveys and interviews with students as well as college presidents, deans of faulty, and other administrators, The Hidden Ivies presents an inside perspective of thirty leading institutions of exceptional merit.

These colleges and universities provide an outstanding educational experience for the gifted college-bound student and provide the foundation for life after graduation. My brother and I each ended up applying to a college/university out of this book so obviously the Greenes were very persuasive in their arguments for these colleges.

The Hidden Ivies gives a great deal of information, and I particularly liked the student perspective about each college the best. The “ideal student” and “what the college stands for” sections were both a close second.
