Top customer reviews
This book is full of insider information not only about how to present yourself but also contains advice on completing your personal statement and ensuring that you present the best possible version of you on your application as well as in person at your interview.
The main advice that I felt stood out was that quality matters over quantity every time, you do not have to be a top grade student who excels at everything, it is about finding what makes you the person that you are, what is special about you and ensuring that you demonstrate this when applying. Confidence is the key but it has to be the right amount! There is a chapter on listening to the right advice and also avoiding making fatal mistakes during interview.
When you consider the weight of the subject matter this book is actually not that bad of a read, it is written in the first person which can make it seem like your own personal mentor! I would have no hesitation in recommending this book it really is essential reading. There is a special chapter devoted to Harvard and the Ivies if this is your aim then you will need this information.
