Hi there! I'm glad to hear that you're starting your college search. It's an exciting journey, and there are plenty of resources to help you along the way.

Some great online resources include CollegeVine, which offers a free college search tool, and the U.S. Department of Education's College Scorecard, which provides data on universities across the nation. CollegeVine also has an informative blog with various articles on the college application process; for instance, this post on finding the best-fit college: https://blog.collegevine.com/how-to-find-the-right-college-for-you/.

For books, I recommend 'The Fiske Guide to Colleges' by Edward Fiske, which offers detailed information on over 300 colleges and universities. Additionally, don't forget to consult your high school guidance counselor; they can provide you with valuable insight and suggestions based on their experience.

Happy searching!
