The Truth about College Admission Workbook: A Family Organizer for Your College Search (Paperback)
Finally A workbook that guides you--and your family--through a positive college admission experience.
College admission has always been complicated--and COVID-19 has changed the college search and selection process in profound and challenging ways. But the authors behind the best-selling The Truth about College Admission are here to help with a new college admission workbook that puts the complex process into the hands of students and those who support them. Packed with activities and exercises, it's designed to help students find multiple colleges where they can not only get in, afford to go, and thrive on campus but also enjoy the adventure along the way.
From building a balanced list of schools to research and visit to writing essays, preparing for interviews, and ultimately choosing a college to attend, the interactive exercises in this comprehensive workbook provide students with important questions to ask, information to consider, and the preparation they need to help them focus more on how they ultimately arrive on a college campus rather than precisely where their journey takes them. If done right, college counselor Brennan Barnard and undergraduate admission director Rick Clark demonstrate, college admission can be more like the college experience itself--an opportunity to grow, learn, discover, enjoy, and build close, lasting relationships.
A companion resource to The Truth about College Admission: A Family Guide to Getting In and Staying Together, each chapter in this guide is designed to help high school classes, small study groups, or individual students and their families focus on the most important questions to ask, steps to take, and conversations to have as they apply to college. Full of accurate information and experience-based insight, this workbook cuts out the noise and stress, instead encouraging students to reflect, research, and regain perspective.
