This year's college sourcebooks,
usually the bane of admissions of-
icials, should have University of-
icials and alumni boasting and
bragging more than ever before.
Those handy sourcebooks aimed at
nfluencing the dwindling pool of
qualified high school students have
much praise for the University and
ittle criticism. From the purely sub-
ective guidebook to the more
ystematic ones, the University is
eceiving high marks.
THE UNIVERSITY'S un-
dergraduate schools draw consisten-
ly rave reviews. Cass and Bir-
mbaum's Competitive Guide to
American Colleges, 11th edition
$12.95) coins the phrase "Mother of
State Universities" when referring to
he University. They also call it "one

Education editor of the New York
Times, Edward Fiske, wrote in his

other big name institutions in
CASS AND Birnbaum's guide,
which includes a specific rating
ystem for assessing a university's
academic standing and selectivity,
laces the University in its "very
elective" category. Factual
background information such as SAT
cores and high school rank form the
basis of this guide's ratings system.
Barron's Profiles of American
Colleges ($12.95) has a similar system
vhich refers to median SAT scores,
nedian ACT scores, high school rank,
G.P.A. required for admission, and
percent of students who are accepted.
Placing in the third highest of nine
categories, the University ranks
For a more subjective rating, there

EDWARD FISKE'S The Selective
Guide to Colleges ($9.95) bases his
reviews on a university's "reputation
in the academic world," quality of its
faculty, level of its teaching and
research, quality of its libraries, and
the "academic seriousness" among
the students and faculty. These aspec-
ts taken together win the University
five stars, the publication's highest
Another more subjective view of
colleges, the Insider's Guide to the
Colleges, ($9.95) was compiled by the
staff of the Yale Daily News. This
book states that the University's

equalled by only a few other univer-

mends the Honors Program here for
its "excellence, personalized instruc-
