5.0 out of 5 stars This book is solid gold for college-bound students February 3, 2003
By A Customer
I recently read EARLY COLLEGE PROGRAMS, and wrote a review for "Bookpage," the independent booksellers' national newspaper. Below are a few sections of that review:
EARLY COLLEGE PROGRAMS is the first book ever written on the relatively little known summer college programs specially designed for high school students. Such programs seemingly exist for college-bound high school students who seek to out-wit the competition when their fate is determined at college admissions time.
Some of the early college programs that this writer noticed in the book are: "Introduction to Computer Integrated Surgery" at Johns Hopkins's "Hopkins Precollege Program;" the "International Relations Program for High School Students" at Georgetown; and, Cornell University Summer College's "Exploration in Architecture." In a workable way, the editor has arranged these and hundreds of other early college programs into 80 career-oriented categories such as "Toward the Making of a Surgeon," "Toward the Making of a Diplomat," "Toward the Making of an Architect," and "Toward the Making of a Filmmaker."
While some, or even many, of these early college programs have long been known to college counselors and students at elite secondary schools like Harvard-Westlake School in Los Angeles or Georgetown Day School in Washington, D.C., the structure of EARLY COLLEGE PROGRAMS attempts to appeal to virtually all college-bound high school students in all income brackets. For example, there is a special section for students interested in early college programs at professional art schools, and yet another for students wishing to attend an early college program at one of the U.S.
