Educated Quest College Insights
Educated Quest is the rare college admissions site that addresses perceptions of “sacred cows” in the college search. These college insights separate fiction from the truth. They help students and parents consider and compare colleges best fit to their interests and needs.
Educated Quest college insights are quite unique to Web sites that offer college admissions advise or college profiles. You will not find these college insights in college rankings books or the guides that you find on the shelves at your nearest bookstore. You will find them only here at Educated Quest.
My college counseling services at Educated Quest give you further insights, personalized to your student’s and your family’s interests and needs. I look forward to having you as a client and sharing my personal insights with you! Have a question or would like to know more about how to consider or compare colleges? Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 609-406-0062.

After visiting Brown, I walked only one block and climbed a steep hill to meet with admissions officers at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). I’ve gathered a few photos of this eclectic campus on Pinterest for you. This visit is partly virtual, partly on campus. RISD has 2,000 undergraduate […]

During the last pandemic year I did an interview with Joie Mills, currently a senior at Brown University. Joie gave the most visited student interview I-ve ever had on this site. I can see why. Brown University is everything that she says it is, based on my most recent campus […]

I recently put up the third post that I have written about Syracuse University since I started this site ten years ago. I have been complementary about the standout academic offerings as well as the university’s athletic tradition. A comparison to USC is also valid. Both schools share similar academic […]

The most important thing that I do as a college admissions advisor is help students make their college lists. I try to recommend schools that should be the best fit academically, financially and socially. Some of these schools get on the final college lists, others don’t. Here’s four that I […]

US News, among other sources, just released its 2020-21 college rankings, the best time for me to announce my Public Ivy schools. This is one of my most-read posts. No doubt that some will agree with me on which schools are or are not a Public Ivy. I have a very […]

Emory & Henry College is another one of the Colleges That Change Lives. It’s a very small college with just over 1,100 undergraduates and 300 health science graduate students. It’s also one of the smallest colleges to have its own schools of Business, Nursing and Health Sciences. I found a few Pinterest […]

New College of Florida is one of only two public Colleges That Change Lives. It’s also a very rare, and very small, public liberal arts college. As of Fall 2020, New College of Florida had fewer than 700 undergrads and welcomed 160 freshmen last fall. That was 100 fewer than the college […]

The College of Charleston is a rarity among colleges, a public mid-sized sized school within a historic, but fast-growing city. It’s also rare in that around half of the undergrads come from out of state. I’ve gathered a few photos on Pinterest for you, so you can get to know […]

Earlham College is another one of the Colleges That Change Lives. A liberal arts college with about 1,000 students, it is aligned with Quaker values. Located in Richmond, Indiana, Earlham’s beautiful campus is equidistant to Cincinnati and Indianapolis, both less than 90 minutes away. It is one of only 16 […]

I was not a college advisor when I first set foot on the campus of the College of William & Mary. But I did visit campus with my parents years before as part of touring Colonial Williamsburg. . I’m hoping to tour campus in post-pandemic times, but for now I […]
