has anyone purchased any of clearadmit's school guides? they are $30 each, probably mostly public info anyway, but if someone has used these perhaps they could comment on their value. here is a link to them http://www.clearadmit.com/guides.html GMAT Club Legend Affiliations: HHonors Diamond, BGS Honor Society Joined: 05 Apr 2006 Posts: 5926 Schools: Chicago (Booth) - Class of 2009 GMAT 1: 730 Q45 V45 WE: Business Development (Consumer Products) Followers: 293 Kudos [?]: 1902 [0], given: 7 Re: clearadmit school guides [#permalink] ### Show Tags 15 Jan 2007, 20:52 Nsentra wrote: has anyone purchased any of clearadmit's school guides? they are$30 each, probably mostly public info anyway, but if someone has used these perhaps they could comment on their value.

Well, just to play devils advocate:

Quote:
-The core curriculum and first-year experience

Blogs, and a simple click on "academics" will give you the same information. A quick conversation with a student will let you tailor your questions to your interests, and ensures you dont write about something that has since changed.

Quote:

Doesnt much matter. A cursory glance at their professor list will tell you this anyway. Moreover, why not write about professors who might actually be related to what you want to do than just try and fit in the most famous one somewhere?

A two second glance will get you the same names.

Quote:
-Student clubs and conferences

I have yet to see a school that doesnt have this information prominently displayed - complete with student run websites, up to date information, and most importantly, contact details.

Quote:
-Full-time job placement - by industry and location

Again, what school doesnt have this most up to date information online? And its much more detailed than just industry or location.

Quote:
-Student demographics

Its basically the same everywhere. Primary male, some female, some international, some married.

Quote:
-International and experiential learning programs

Again a ten second cursory glance will find this information at any school. I was able to find it for GSB in about five clicks. I found it for Kellogg in ten.

Quote:
-Tuition, financial aid and scholarships

Again, all online.

Meh, seems like waste to me.
