The Princeton Review conducts our annual College Hopes and Worries Survey of college applicants and parents of applicants to report on their expectations and experiences surrounding the college application process. Respondents are readers of our annual "Best Colleges" guidebook and users of our website.
Findings for our 2014 survey are based on responses from 14,150 people: 10,116 college applicants and 4,034 parents of applicants. They came from across America, representing all 50 states and DC. Some replied from countries abroad.
Some of our key findings are below. Also, check out our favorite words of advice from students and parents.
