Does the college application process overwhelm you? Are you unsure about the topic for your main essay? How about which school is the right fit, or how you are going to pay for college? All the students in this book faced a similar task of trying to figure out which college would be the best fit for them and how best to communicate what made them unique to that college.
While many books address what you need to do and offer a step-by-step outline, very few show you how and why. Surviving the College Application Process: Case Studies to Help You Find Your Unique Angle for Success offers a different approach. Imagine following eleven students’ journeys in-depth, getting into their heads when they made a decision about which extracurricular activities to pursue, which schools to apply to, and which topics to choose for their essays. Imagine having a tool that will help you think about your own process in a more strategic way.
