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.

A must have guide for anyone interested in going from a public high school to a top college in the US. Buy this book when your student is in middle school, and refer to it early and often.

Reading a college admissions book was never my idea of fun, but I was so thankful to find this book because it was the only book I needed. The information was easy- to- follow, accurate, and the stories were enjoyable to read. We really needed scholarship money, and this book was catered to families who don’t mind putting forth the extra effort to get financial aid. If you need to buy a college admissions book, this is an investment you won’t regret!
