5.0 out of 5 stars Great content!
The essays in this book and the essay authors' comments at the end were very helpful. Each essay is well written and gives a good glimpse into college admissions. It helps you brainstorm a bit if you're at this stage in life.

3.0 out of 5 stars Helpful but I found AdmitSee to be more useful!
This book was helpful in giving some college essay samples but I felt it lacked personalization because college application isn't just about the essay but a combination of many things. I found the website AdmitSee.com much more helpful. You can buy a student's profile and then access EVERYTHING that went into the application file--not just the essay. I'd recommend...

3.0 out of 5 stars Helpful but I found AdmitSee to be more useful!, March 30, 2014
This book was helpful in giving some college essay samples but I felt it lacked personalization because college application isn't just about the essay but a combination of many things. I found the website AdmitSee.com much more helpful. You can buy a student's profile and then access EVERYTHING that went into the application file--not just the essay. I'd recommend visiting that site before buying this book--at the very least, you should browse essay intros for free on the AdmitSee Essays Tab.

3.0 out of 5 stars Or a Better Idea., March 28, 2014
This review is from: 50 Successful Ivy League Application Essays (Paperback)
You never know if the students who wrote these essays got in because of their writing... or because of other factors.

I found the website AdmitSee.com much more helpful, because at least when you buy a package of Harvard profiles there, you can see EVERYTHING that went into the application file--not just the essay. You can see clubs the students were involved in, background information, and more. I'd recommend visiting that site before buying this book--at the very least, you should browse essay intros for free on the AdmitSee Essays Tab.

Best suited to high school students rather than college students trying to get into a PhD program. Book was in good condition
