The Right College Match

FROM the Wall Street Journal By SUZANNE BARLYN
January 29, 2008; Page D1

Both the sites mentioned in the article are useful, but unfortunately they are geared to undergraduates.

Problem: Finding colleges compatible with your child's interests and academic performance.

Solution: Create a profile on Cappex (www.cappex.com), a free Web-based "matchmaking" service that pairs students with colleges looking for specific types of candidates. Cappex also helps facilitate introductions between colleges and students by forwarding student profiles to admissions offices. Hone in on schools using factors such as cost and location at College MatchMaker, an online service from the College Board (http://collegesearch.collegeboard.com/search/adv_typeofschool.jsp). Or generate a list of your child's personal top schools using the ranking feature on Admish, an online college admissions community (www.admish.com/?q=the_best_college_for_me) with personal ranking criteria students choose from a master list.

Caveat: A Web site isn't a substitute for a visit to a college, where prospective students can see for themselves whether the school is a good fit.
