"With so many qualified applicants, competition for college admissions is fiercer than ever. Now you can put yourself ahead of the pack by making your application flawless! "When applying for college, good grades and high standardized test scores are not always enough to guarantee admission. What sets you apart, argues Michele Hernandez, is the way you describe yourself in your application. But how do you present yourself with flair, and highlight all your talents, skills, and passions, in just a few pages? A former assistant director of admissions at Dartmouth College, Dr. Hernandez takes you step-by-step through the entire application process, revealing the details that make or break an applicant. From the multitude of short and longer essays to the myriad of charts, lists, and personal data sections, she offers essential advice, useful anecdotes, and vivid examples. Included are: - A line-by-line look at the common application - The truth about the essays, with samples of those that made the grade - The best way to ask for teacher and guidance counselor recommendations - When to provide colleges with optional essays and peer evaluations - The ten common myths and misconceptions of the on-campus interview - The most meaningful academic subjects, work experience, and extracurricular activities to mention - Early action versus early decision--the trade offs With this helpful, savvy book, prospective college students--and their parents and counselors--can now vastly improve their chances of getting into the college of their choice. "Want to scale the Ivy wall? Michele Hernandez gives you the tools to do it. This brisk, no-nonsense book is built oninside dope, and Hernandez's experience allows her to challenge conventional admissions thinking." --HARRY BAULD Author of "On Writing the College Application Essay "
