Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Written as an act of personal catharsis, Fetter's reflections on her seven years as Stanford's dean of undergraduate admissions is as engrossing as it is informative. . . . The book warrants an audience far wider than admissions professionals and higher education specialists. It has much to say to anyone concerned with equity and excellence in our universities."—Choice
