Colleges that Change Lives

January 31, 2007 -- From Vicki, a reader, from Sonoma, CA, who is not affiliated with the site.

The traditional college setting was not providing what my son was looking for. Too many colleges required that he select to major in either music, or theater, or film studies, or English when he wanted to continue to pursue and blend his skills in all of these areas. Then a college counselor told us about Colleges that Change Lives.

This site selects colleges based on specific criteria that impact lives in terms of graduate successes, quality of educational experience and more. We found more than five colleges that were perfect for my son and so far he has been accepted to two of them — with scholarships!
