Get into Any College: Secrets of Harvard Students
Based on the real-life experiences of students who were admitted to the US’ most prestigious universities, this guide provides proven strategies to get into and pay for any college. Detailing what high school students—from freshmen to seniors—can do to prepare, this up to date edition addresses contemporary changes in admissions and financial aid processes and the more and more popular early-admissions option. Examples of applications, interviews, and 23 actual college-admission essays complement information on how parents can lend a hand without hurting, what it takes to ace the new SAT and ACT, and where students can find free cash for tuition. Stories of students’ successes and screw ups reveal how the college-admissions and financial-aid processes in reality work, whilst giving a personal face to what’s regularly seen as an impersonal experience. A section for special groups includes admission considerations for athletes, transfer and international students, students with disabilities, and home-schooled students.
