This week on NPR Specials:

"College Choice: The Value of It All" is a new hour-long special produced by NPR News, hosted by All Things Considered's Robert Siegel. Robert spent more than a year checking in periodically with nine college seniors, talking with them about their choice of school and how things turned out. The special follows the arc of these visits, capturing the highlights of this reporting project from beginning to end.

College Choice: The Value of It All will air Saturday, January 28th at 19:00 and Monday, January 30th at 08:00.
