Guidance counselors' regret

Author: Notre Dame Magazine

The college that high school guidance counselors most often say they wish they’d attended is Notre Dame.

That’s one of the findings from a nationwide survey published in Kaplan/Newsweek College Catalog 2001, a compendium of admissions information for 1,100 colleges and universities.

The survey asked counselors from public and private high schools a variety of targeted questions. When asked where they would go if they could repeat their college years, they most frequently cited Notre Dame.

The guide also rated Notre Dame to be among the nation’s leading universities in terms of value, responsiveness to the financial aid needs of students and academic competitiveness.
