Emily Orthwein, a junior, came to see me yesterday. She wondered where to start her college search. Geography? Academic interests? Reputation?

My advice.

Start with your prospective list. Mr. Cernick and I put a lot of time and thought into playing match maker. Consider us like a dating service. Not for a guy or girl, of course. But a college or university.

Remember: our philosophy is best fit for you. Not best school out there.

Beyond that I'd recommend the Princeton Review Counselor-O-Matic. It's a lot of fun. Kind of like a dating service. You provide the program lots of personal information. They spit out a prospective list of their own. Compare and contrast our list with Princeton's. And it is free.
