People think that they didn’t get admission because they are not fulfilling the criteria fixed by the college but actually the reason is totally different. Here the author wanted to make us including parents and students realize that none of the colleges is good or bad and students as well as teaching and non- teaching staff makes the college good or bad.

“Colleges That Change Lives: 40 Schools That Will Change the Way You Think About Colleges” is an excellent resource for parents and students looking for a college or university that can meet the needs of young people entering college. This book, “Colleges That Change Lives: 40 Schools That Will Change The Way You Think About Colleges”, has become a well-known and classic guidebook read by many during the college selection process. It is the book that first introduces many people to the concept that small liberal arts colleges will often provide superior education and are better choices than big universities for many college-bound high school seniors.
It also points out that professors at those schools are often far more interested in research than paying attention to whether undergraduate students are actually learning the subject or not. Small 4-year liberal arts colleges, however, are different. There, class sizes are smaller, and the professors are far more likely to care about whether their students actually understand what is being taught. The small liberal arts colleges are also much easier for the typical high school graduate to gain entry to.
