Edward B. Fiske is the founder and editor of the Fiske Guide to Colleges. A former Education Editor of the New York Times, Fiske is known around the world for his award-winning writing on topics ranging from trends in American higher education to school reform in Southeast Asia, New Zealand and South Africa.The guide was established in 1982 when, covering higher education for the Times, Fiske sensed the need for a publication that would help students and parents navigate the increasingly complex college admissions scene. The guide, an annual publication, immediately became a standard part of college admissions literature and it is now the country’s best-selling college guide.Fiske has teamed up with his wife, Helen F. Ladd, a professor at Duke University, on several major international research projects regarding the development of education in various countries. Together, they are co-editors of the Handbook of Research in Education Finance and Policy, the official handbook of the American Education Finance Association. Fiske’s journalistic travels have taken him to more than 60 countries on behalf of the U.S. Agency for International Development, UNESCO and the Asia Society.Born in Philadelphia, Fiske graduated from Wesleyan University summa cum laude, and received master’s degrees in theology from Princeton Theological Seminary and in political science from Columbia University. He is a regular contributor to the International Herald-Tribune. In addition to the New York Times, his articles and book reviews have appeared in Atlantic Monthly, Chronicle of Higher Education, Los Angeles Times, and other national publications.A resident of Durham, North Carolina, Fiske serves on a number of boards of non-profit organizations working for access to college and international understanding. He is also a founding member of the board of the Central Park School for Children, a charter school in Durham. <div id="

  • “Fiske Guide to Colleges 2019” (858 pages) is a curious college-guidance/search book in my opinion. It lists the “best and most interesting” colleges in the country, about 300 out of 2,000+ four year colleges in the US (and even some Canadian and British schools) are written up.According to the introduction, these colleges were selected on the basis of academic quality, geographic diversity, a balance of public and private schools, and schools that are currently popular for certain programs (engineering and technical schools, religious emphasis, etc.). Being from Ohio, I look at the list of 13 schools that “made the cut” and inexplicably Xavier University (a very fine Jesuit college here in Cincinnati) is left out of the book. Huh? While the descriptions give a good flavor of a particular college, there are essentials missing, such as the exact tuition/room/board (there is only a general 1 to 4 star rating on how expensive a college is, and even those are misleading, for example American University (the school of my youngest) is listed merely as “moderately” expensive for a private school (defined as “$42-48K for tuition”), which is off the mark! For the record, AU full-time undergrad tuition is $51K for 2018-19 and add another $14-16K for room/board and other miscellaneous fees. Also not helpful in my opinion is that the colleges are presented alphabetically, rather than by state, since most kids look at colleges in a particular state (usually their home state), although there is an index by state.On the other hand, the descriptions of the schools are oftentimes right on point. Check the first sentence on American University (the college of my youngest): “If the odds to enter Georgetown are against you and you can’t see yourself on GW’s highly urban campus, welcome to American University.” That is EXACTLY what happened to my daughter: not admitted to Georgetown, admitted to GW and AU, but turned off by GW’s urban campus and instead charmed by American’s idyllic campus, hence AU. (and, as this book notes, “AU is one-third smaller, and now more selective, than GW”). The descriptions of the school my son attended here in Ohio are also on point.When my daughter was simply looking to get basic information, she did not spend a lot of time with this book. As she narrowed her choices, she did read up more on her pool of colleges in this book. Bottom line: if you are at the very beginning of your college search, this is not the book to start with. For that I might instead suggest “The Complete Book of Colleges” issued by the Princeton Review, “College Handbook” issued by CollegeBoard, or “Barron’s Profiles of American Colleges”. On the other hand, The “Fisk Guide to Colleges” (which really should be titled “Fiske Guide to Select Colleges” or something like that) is instead more appropriate/helpful to get a second (or third) opinion once your child has narrowed down his/her selection of colleges of interest (assuming of course it made the Fiske cut of 300).
  • I’m a Harvard Grad (class of ’02), professional test-prep tutor and college consultant based in San Diego, and I give this book my qualified recommendation.I’ve been using the Fiske guide to Colleges with my students for over 10 years now. Although it’s not my favorite college guide (that honor goes to Princeton Review’s College Guide
  • I know many schools have gone “test optional”, and that the range of scores reported by schools can be somewhat difficult to interpret. But we bought this as a quick reference for colleges we know little about, and it is inconvenient to have that piece of information missing. The book explains why it was left out, but the publisher description on Amazon does not mention it. We are now primarily using the 2020 version we already had. So far the only change I have noticed is excluding the test scores.
  • Have used this during the college process for my two oldest and about to use for our third. Best college guide I’ve seen (and I’ve looked through a number). Gives all the stats you’d expect but then goes on to give more holistic reviews of each school (usually 2-3 pages), covering everything from the ambience of the place to the quality of professors to the surrounding area to the dorms to the facilities to the social life and more. All to say, you get a real sense of each school and its distinctive qualities, both visceral and practical. Have given it to friends going through the process for the first time and it is the first book I recommend, hands down.
  • Very helpful. Concise descriptions of colleges including admission statistics, quotes from students, campus size and demographics, social aspects including Greek life presence. Handy for quickly researching and comparing colleges, helped us create our short list
  • Its all there
  • Love it, as it gives the feel of the colleges – culture and atmosphere – good pre-read ahead of the college visits.
  • Very helpful
