Overview

The definitive resource for students determined to stand out from the crowd of applicants and join the ranks of the chosen few the country's most prestigious schools.

Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Brown, Stanford, Columbia, Georgetown, UCLA, West Point each year, elite schools like these attract hundreds of thousands of smart, talented, motivated, and hopeful applicants. Author of the highly successful How to Get into the Top MBA Programs, Richard Montauk and Krista Klein present the first comprehensive, in-depth, and targeted resource showing students just what it takes to make the grade at the nation's forty leading private and public colleges, and the three premier service academies.

Focusing on both the nuts-and-bolts and strategic planning, Montauk takes students, step by step, through the entire application process. Once students determine their target schools with the help of detailed descriptions and rankings--candid insider insights illuminate the unique mindset and methods behind admissions. Through extensive examples of recommendations, essays, and interviews, students will learn to shape their credentials for effective self-marketing. And telling case studies of typical applicants with feedback from actual admissions directors pinpoint the most common weaknesses and ways to improve them.

Lively, accessible, and revealing, How to Get Into The Top Colleges is the ultimate guide for serious students with their sights on the Ivy League.
