Amazon.comBarnes & NobleIndieBound

Written by two former admissions officers at top universities and current admissions coaches, this book is a must-have for preparing a winning college application. The authors reveal the mystery behind what college admissions officers are looking for and show applicants how to leverage their credentials, stand out in the over-crowded applicants' pool, and make a genuine, memorable impression. This is the book that will help the college-bound get off the "like many others" pile and onto the acceptance list.

  • Includes instructions and examples for every component of the college application, from writing the essay to answering questions like "Why do you want to go to College X?"
  • Shows how to avoid underestimating the importance of critical features on any application
  • Includes the latest information on the Common Application 4.0 and corrects outdated, holdover advice still stressed in many other books

This book is filled with step-by-step advice that students and parents can use immediately and will refer to again and again.
