Transitions at the Top
How to write the all-important Common App essay—and present your extra-curricular activities, why not put yourself ahead of the pack. Comprehensive, yet easy-to-read, this book will teach you: How to size up the colleges you re considering—and come up with a coherent list, -and much, much more. What are college nights, college fairs, and college rep visits—and how you can use each to your advantage, how to prepare for an alumni interview—and present yourself in the best light.
How to figure out the true costs of college, and what is the difference between need- and merit-based aid, what are Early Decision, Early Action, and Single-Choice Early Action—and whether any is right for you. How some schools count demonstrated interest —and how you can take advantage of this little-known fact, how to compare your final offers—and, in some cases, substantially improve them.
What it means when colleges say they meet 100% of demonstrated financial aid and what loan-free means, what are holistic , contextualized , and legacy admissions—and how each can work for you. When it s good to wait out the wait list —and when not, how to prepare for each section of the ACT or SAT—and how to increase your scores. Whom to ask for letters-of-recommendation—and how to help them write the best possible letter, two award-winning professors, a former admissions officer at a major university (now a counselor at a prestigious high school), and a gifted high school senior (now in the throes of the college admissions process himself) team up to offer you over 600 tips, techniques, and strategies to help you get in to the college of your choice.
What admissions officers are looking for in your application—and how to give it to them, when and how to make campus visits—and what to do on each.
