College is not the automatic answer to "What happens after high school?" In order for college to be the answer, many steps must be taken: forms have to be filled out and submitted, and long range planning needs to occur. The planning actually needs to start as early as the eighth grade! College Countdown is a survival kit for teens and
parents who are struggling to get through this intense and confusing process. It is designed to help families organize all the stuff required by college admissions. This helpful workbook includes: tear-out timelines and checklists; financial aid ideas; internet resources; inside advice on admissions essays and interviews; and much more.
Praise for Taming the Paper Monster.

I recommend this book for all of my students who are planning to attend college. The book is comprehensive, easy to follow, and unlike other books on college it has handy examples of sample resumes, worksheets for listing college visits and contacts, sample questions for interviews, timelines for scholarships and applications, and a sample of a thank you note for recommendations. The book is easy to follow and is based on Mrs. Von Gruben's own personal experiences with her children. The college industry has become a big business and wise students and parents need to explore all options. This book will help them to know when to begin the college planning process, how to go about it, and will enable students and parents to make wise decisions regarding college.Was this review helpful?
