Just bought it.  You get the extra in depth stats for all schools and that is about it.  If $15 bucks will satisfy your curiousity then it is worth it.  There are a few more stats like the easiest/hardest schools to get into, the schools that give the most financial aid etc.  Not anything spectacular but interesting if you like that kind of thing.

Then again, I will be able to, due to the fact that my scores dominate at Wyoming, to rank high and transfer to DU or UCB so I can be a resources/ag/energy lawyer.
