A college education is more necessary today than ever before. Studies show that students who receive college degrees are likely to reach greater heights in their careers and to make much more money throughout the course of their working lives. But competition has soared in this new economic reality, and different groups of students have found themselves shut out of colleges due to practical concerns like finances or due to nonadmission based on a complex (and opaque) admissions process. How can you navigate this complex process? This book provides varying perspectives on the college admissions process in order to aid students in making important decisions that will greatly impact their future.
