Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Written by a husband-and-wife team with personal experience steering their own teens through the college admission process, this slim but information-packed guide completely covers the basics while urging readers along with a cheerful can-do attitude. While geared to teens who've arrived at the college decision late in the game, all academia-bound students will find it useful.
VOYA - Courtney Huse Wika
The college application process can be an overwhelming and anxiety-inducing experience. For many high school seniors unaware of the complexities of the process, the deadlines for applications and aid arrive too quickly or creep by unnoticed. Get into College in 3 Months or Less is a quick guide for first-time applicants to any kind of higher education institution. The book offers advice on identifying and evaluating schools, applying for admission, and finding funding; it also provides an overview of the different methods of obtaining a degree, from the traditional four-year institution to online coursework, night classes, and community and technical colleges. A particularly helpful section presents two checklists for applicants: a progress chart for each month of senior year and an expedited three-month planning calendar for late starts. This is a well-researched and accessible guide to the college application process. While it provides a plethora of tips on organization, time management, and personal responsibility, the guide offers more than just an overview. It also presents tips on avoiding the seven major "gotcha" obstacles of the process, such as in-state residency rules and incomplete applications. For those looking for alternative funding options, the book provides a solid list of scholarship resources. With additional chapters on composing winning application responses and essays, including the necessity of revision and peer review, to scoring well in video and face-to-face interviews, this is a must-read for all students looking for guidance during their journey to higher education.
