Veteran College Administrator, Dr. Christopher Lewis releases his second publication, "The Ultimate College Preparation Blueprint: Everything You Should Expect and Do When Planning For College." The book takes 15 years of college admissions experience and provides practical tips for students preparing for the college search process.
"As a high school counselor I see many students struggling to make the right decisions on classes and extracurricular activities that will benefit them with college acceptance," said High School Counselor Felicia Carter, MAEd, NCC. "Dr. Lewis has done an excellent job in giving students a resource for college preparation that is practical, easy to read and and follows a logical process. I feel like every high school freshman and his or her parents could benefit from this book."
The book is set up in such a way that anyone can pick it up and be on the road toward college acceptance in no time. Full of checklists and assessments, the book will not only provide practical tips, but it also provides the reader with ways in which they can better understand what they are looking for in a college.
"Too often students and parents struggle with the college search process and make many mistakes along the way that could be easily avoided," said Dr. Lewis, Director of Enrollment Programs and Student Services for the Thomas M. Cooley Law School. "I have taken the essentials that everyone needs to know to be admitted into any college and have made this a guide that students can pick up and use right away."
"The Ultimate College Preparation Blueprint: Everything You Should Expect and Do When Planning For College" is available in print or for Kindle readers in the following locations:

Praise for the Book:
"My first attempt at college was a woeful mess. I hadn't applied for financial aid; I didn't plan for unexpected expenses; and I wasn't even sure how the process worked. What's worse, neither did my parents. This was a major factor in why I dropped out after one semester. Dr. Lewis' blueprint would've been a huge help in avoiding that inevitability. Now, however, given that I have five children all intent on earning degrees, the thorough input provided in this book has given me a measure of confidence for when it becomes time to guide them through this process and put them in the best position for success. Furthermore, advice such as that given in the college choice timeline has taught me that preparing for college starts much earlier than I originally thought. Being educated as a parent in this area is key in ensuring our children get their education for their later lives. Dr. Lewis' The Ultimate College Education Blueprint is a valuable resource for doing just that."

"Nicely done Chris. I particularly like the section about the Admission Essay. This is such an important section that many kids overlook and parents try to control... or even write. Passion, conviction, and authenticity is so important. This is such a valuable guide and one i know I will be referring to as my 16 year old daughter is starting this process."
