Reviews

"So much admissions advice seems intended for high achievers aiming for hyperselective schools. B+ Grades, A+ College Application is a refreshing change. It offers wise counsel to the solid student looking for a good college fit as well as tips on how to maximize acceptance odds. While any student can benefit from the suggestions in this book, those with some Bs (or below) should be delighted to find that they are, for once, the target audience."
-SALLY RUBENSTONE, columnist, "Ask the Dean," CollegeConfidential.com

"The decisions made during the college admissions process can have a huge impact on your life. This book provides an expert-crafted road map for this crucial period."
-CAL NEWPORT, author, How to Be a High School Superstar
