I myself took advice from Susan in pursuing a project during my high-school years, and I was surprised not only by how captivating it became, but by how well Susan showed me how to mold my work and make it grow into something that could really make a difference in an area I truly cared about.
Now I still have the same dedication to the project I began years ago, which made it onto various news stations such as NBC, and even caught the attention of my mayor, vice mayor, fire and police departments! I found that a project is a win-win situation.
As a result of my project, I was accepted into almost every institution to which I applied, and had to choose between amazing merit scholarships and opportunities at many schools, eventually choosing to study at Columbia University in the City of New York as a C. Prescott Davis Scholar.
Again, if college has a role in your future, pick up this book and read it. Don't miss out on the chance to engage yourself in something meaningful while getting ahead of the game.
The advice and knowledge I received from this book taught me more than how to get into the college of my choice, but it taught me how to be successful at anything I want to accomplish. If you are a perspective college student, this book is an essential!
