Editorial Reviews

Review

"This guide can be beneficial to students of any background and at any stage of their college search process…Mamlet and Vandevelde’s guidebook provides significant and helpful direction at every stage of the college search. To reinforce their advice, they close every chapter with validation and wisdom from experienced admission deans and high school guidance counselors. Families that look to this guidebook will have a balanced sense of how to navigate the college search without feeling overwhelmed. With their new knowledge, students will traverse the college application process with a sense of ease." -- National Association for College Admission Counseling 


"This guide is a must-have resource for any student planning to enter college. No other publication offers this level of expertise and all-encompassing, reassuring wealth of information [...] Whether there is a sophomore, junior or high school student in the home, this guide will help connect the dots and show the way to help an applicant possibly receive an acceptance letter for the college of their choice." -- The Tuscon Citizen

COLLEGE ADMISSION avoids all stratagems for shoehorning your child into Harvard. Instead, it shows us how to treat the app process as a chance for self-reflection, culminating in acceptance to a school that’s an authentic fit.” -- Eli Wolfe, San Francisco Magazine

"Hurrah! An upbeat, practical book on college admissions [...]  it's well organized and readable [...] covers the basics (getting ready, selecting colleges, the application process, paying for school, deciding which to attend, etc.), enhanced with insights from 50 deans of admission, high school counselors and educators. And, dare I suggest this? It is good reading for your prospective college freshmen, too." -- Karen Horton, The Star-Ledger - NJ.com

"A new college admissions bible [...]Here is a new book jam-packed with information on every aspect of the admissions process [...] College Admission does what the title promises, in an accessible format that taps the knowledge and experience of admissions directors and others involved in the process." -- Valerie Strauss, The Washington Post
