'Quick Query' Custom Reports!

network coast-to-coast from your desk on 70 of your highest-priority topics

APC maintains an extensive database of information on our over 400 member schools and their alumni programs. A Quick Query Report delves deeply into this database for you, pulling out only the schools that match your needs.

Use APC's new 'Quick Query'™ reports, our low-cost snapshots that list the APC schools with programs you want to find out more about. You'll network easily, coast-to-coast, on more than 70 of your highest-priority topics.
It's this easy:

1) Choose your topic, fill out the form, and order your Quick Query report. Most mail the same day!
2) From the report, select the schools you want to contact, prepare your script of questions, and start networking! Quick Queries includes the name, phone, fax & email of your collegial counterpart at every school listed, as well as the city, state, number of students, number of reachable alums, and codes for grades, day/boarding, and girls/boys/coed.

Sample Script for phone, fax, or mail: "Hi, this is (Your Name) at (Your School) in (City/State). We APC members and we ordered a Quick Query Report on schools that (have reunion handbooks, etc.); (Your School) was on the list. I'd like to talk with you about it either now or at a time that's convenient for you. If you have an extra copy, we would love a copy."
We'll do the search, you'll get the information you need.
