Editorial Reviews

The Midwest Book Review - James A. Cox
A 212 page instruction manual for parents and their students who are from modest means and want to be able to avail themselves of the extraordinary opportunities that an Ivy League university education, experience, and contacts will afford them. The primary author draws upon her many years of experience and expertise to craft an informed and informative guide. Superbly well organized, thoroughly 'user friendly', and very highly recommended for family, school, and community library.
