Overview

Likening the search for the perfect college to the search for the perfect mate—both are confusing, stressful, and important—this guide full of real-world examples and advice from students and college admissions deans, makes the admissions process clear to both students and their parents. Offering answers to the applicant's common questions—What should I expect in an interview? What should I do if I am wait-listed? How can I improve my scores?—the relatable resource explains how all the pieces work together—from “pre-date primping” (course work and standardized tests) and “the first date” (the interview and visits) to “the love letter” (personal essay), “paying for dinner” (financial aid), and “mixed messages” (the wait list). This guide goes step-by-step through the college admissions process, offering honest stories, tried-and-true advice, and humorous cartoons to make this serious process more palatable, while dating tips at the end of each chapter continue the analogy and keep the tone light and fun.
