Review

“An accessible, student-centric approach… Clear examples demonstrate how to incorporate individual talents and energies into an effective strategy. In! will show you how to shine.”
—Ray Kim, Assistant Dean of Admissions and Academic Advising, College of Arts and Sciences, Cornell University

In! offers smart tools that can be employed successfully anywhere one wishes to excel.”
—Jared Cohen, Director of Google Ideas

“Helpful and easy-to-read… An excellent guide, especially for students trying to compete at the top level...”
Library Journal

"In! College Admissions and Beyond is the best resource book I have seen for preparing high school students and their parents for the college admissions process. It has both tactical and strategic advice and can be read cover to cover or used as a reference. I used it with my daughter and it made a tremendous difference in her understanding of the process and, therefore, her ability to compete effectively."
—Sally K. Bayless, Through The Magic Door

Format: Paperback
I loved this book for its wealth of practical, actionable advice. But even more, I valued that it's fundamentally about identifying and building on what you love and who you really are, not just creating a slick package for college admissions. The book's "alike then spike" approach shows how you need to be "alike" in a handful of ways (e.g., test scores within the same average ranges as other applicants to a particular school) and then "spike" - stand out - in a way that's true to your individuality and that sets you apart from the pack. Love video games? Take a summer course in video game design - and then try building one yourself. Love animals? Volunteer at an animal shelter or apprentice yourself to an animal trainer. Doing these things are means to an end - standing out on an application and getting into a school that's right for you - but they're also ends in themselves. You'll only grow through learning how to engage in meaningful ways with the world around what you love. I loaned my copy to a friend's daughter and she didn't want to give it back; that's the first of three copies I've bought and then given out on "loan."

While plowing through just about every book on the market on the subject of colleges and the admissions process for more than a year now, I can say this was one of the more useful ones out today. Each chapter takes you step by step in getting your student into the right classes and applying themselves in as well as out of the class room to make themselves stand out among their peers just a little bit more.

Format: Paperback
This book really showed how students should not view the admissions process as a hopeless competition of trying to be like everyone else. Instead it is about both achieving the highest standards (GPA, SAT, and all other achievement scores) and then about really pursuing one's interests and presenting them in the best light. I particularly liked the idea of layering an interest by pursuing it over the years in multiple ways and also about enjoying other activities in which one might not be a leader or super talented. It also showed that the essay is an important piece because it reveals a real person with an authentic voice. If this is how admissions at elite colleges work, then it is quite a rich and interesting process. And it does result in wonderful, interesting, and different students on campus. The whole reason to attend a prestigious college is to have this philosophical and intellectual experience, surrounded by other deep-thinking people striving for the highest standards. This is a thoughtful and insightful book.
