Overview

Don't Stalk the Admissions Officer: How to Survive the College Admissions Process Without Losing Your Mind by Risa Lewak

The college admissions process is:

A) Similar to gallbladder surgery without anesthesia

B) Worse than watching American Idol auditions without earplugs

C) Soul-destroying, ego-crushing, and life-sucking

D) Actually kind of funny when you think about it

E) All of the above

There's no denying it: Applying to college is a grueling journey just shy of cruel and unusual punishment. But that doesn't mean you can't laugh along the way. If college is on your horizon, Don't Stalk the Admissions Officer shows you how to ace the tricky application process-while maintaining your sense of humor and sanity. Former pre-admissions counselor Risa Lewak empowers you to craft a killer essay, choose between the SAT and ACT, score stellar recommendations, nail the interview, handle overly involved parents, and more. You'll also learn how to navigate crucial post-application issues, like financial aid, rejection, and deciding whether to take a year off. Packed with insider tips, helpful suggestions, and laugh-out-loud anecdotes, this savvy handbook gives you the know-how and confidence to conquer this stressful rite of passage . . . and minimize nervous breakdowns.
