Don't Stalk the Admissions Officer is a rare "get into college" help book. It gives real life, practical tips that will help both high schoolers and their parents get through the process. But what makes it so awesome is that every page offers laughs at how preposterous the whole affair has become. From lampooning overachievers to slackers, dull-witted high school guidance counselors and helicopter parents, no one gets out unscathed. You might see yourself, too.
But Lewak offers some sage advice that could be life changing for a lot of people. She highlights the benefits of community college. And doing after school activities that really mean something to you, and done not just for impressing a college admissions officer. These might sound like simple ideas, but if many students followed this advice, they and their parents would be a lot happier. And richer! Finally, a college guide that recognizes that kids should enjoy high school and not spend those four years thinking only of the future. A must-read for kids and parents about to take the college admissions plunge...

I stumbled upon this book in Borders and couldn't put it down. It was absolutely hilarious, and I only wish it had been available when I was applying to college a decade ago. Not only does it provide extremely relevant tips for high school students of all ages, it also provides some levity to an area that is in dire need of it. I work with adolescents and will be recommending that they check it out.

Save your money. This women does not know what she is writing about. I encourage you to work with your school who can truly help you. The money you would have used from this book, put in your college fund.
