I think she will also find it readable, encouraging and fun.
Dr. Emily Matuszewicz
It is written with the teenager in mind, but parents will also find it very helpful in understanding the steps in the application and selection process.

Format: Paperback
I loved this book! It is packed with both information and insider tips, but has humor and speaks in a language that kids (and parents) will enjoy. Rather than leaving you feeling like the mountain is just too high to climb like some books I have read, these two authors make you feel like YOU can find the FIT for YOU. I wish I had this book when my kids were in junior high for best use of all their wonderful advise. No bland, dry, same ole-blah-blah here.

How to be Irresistible to Colleges is a comprehensive guide for high school students, to be used on its own or to confirm what one's college counselor is recommending. It is well written, light-hearted, and entertaining, while offering good, sound advice and a new insight into the process of choosing, applying to, and accepting the college best suited to the individual student. Both highschoolers and their parents will find this book a valuable aid.

Format: Paperback
I met Eric on a college trip a couple of years ago, and after exchanging our experiences and insights into the college admissions process, he told me about the book he wrote (and complained about the title--the publisher's decision, really!). He kindly sent me a copy and I found it engaging, humorous, and honest. It is written with the teenager in mind, but parents will also find it very helpful in understanding the steps in the application and selection process. I especially liked the part about the college essay. He does a great compare/contrast example which really illustrates what can make a good (yawn) essay engaging and interesting.

During my high school years I had the privilege of being coached in the art of college admissions by Lynda Herring, the co-author of the book. I can testify that she has been instrumental in countless successful pursuits for college acceptance letters, including my own. Without her advice and encouragement I could very well have ended up falling considerably short of my potential. This book is a boiled-down, concentrated version of that exact coaching that has benefited me and so many other students striving not only to get into college, but to get into the *right* college. It is a must read for students and parents/teachers/motivators alike.

The book is both well-written and useful. The authors incorporate practical knowledge and insight, as well as a rare, but welcome, sense of humor, to enlighten the reader and leave him or her excited about the upcoming decisions and the unique experiences that go hand in hand with finding, and getting in, to the right college. I highly recommend this book and urge you to use it as a resource if you are considering college.
