What People are saying about this
How to Get Into the Top Colleges shows for the first time how admissions are made at each of the top colleges. I was surprised to see how much the decision-making varies from one school to the next. This book is truly unique - nothing else comes close to it...I highly recommend it.
Undoubtedly the best book I have ever seen on college admissions, particularly regarding the top schools. If you chose only one guide to assist you, make it this one. This is absolutely must reading.
I enjoyed the book and am proud to recommend it. How to Get into the Top Colleges is a step-by-step, comprehensive guide to researching and applying to the selective colleges. It's the only guide book a selective college applicant needs to read.
