Search for a college or university with Google and you'll soon see a new results card. These small, mobile-friendly summaries include graduation and acceptance rates, the average post-grad salary and the normal fees for undergraduate tuition. All of the stats are being pulled from the US Department of Education's "College Scorecard" site, meaning they're reliable and easy to compare. Of course, you've always been able to find this information yourself -- it just took a little longer rooting around the web. Now, it's easier to retrieve some quick, top-level information.

So whatever you value the most -- be it projected earnings, or cheaper fees -- you can surface this information almost immediately. Which sounds pretty useful, whether you're just starting to think about your options, or narrowing down some colleges you've been deliberating for months.
