Barron’s Profiles of American Colleges

Lovejoy’s College Counselor

Barron’s Profiles of American Colleges (Laser Resources) and Lovejoy’s College Counselor (Davidson & Associates) can help you and/or your child narrow her search for the right school. Lovejoy’s interface provides a number of ways to search: by Admission, Majors, Cost, Location, Activities, Characteristics, and Special Services to access information on 1600+ four-year institutions. You can also get help from an on-screen counselor. Barrons, with information on 1650+ colleges, is less user-friendly. There are two ways to access the college profiles. Click on a map of the US, then click on a region, then on a state to bring up a list of schools. There is also a standard search function which allows you to enter a word or words for a full-text search. Matching words will bring up the appropriate profile. On each disc, some of the schools have included videos or slides, maps, application requirements and other pertinent information. Sifting through all this data on a CD-ROM is quick and painless, and is good practice for coming college experience.
