From Library Journal
Writing the college application essay can be frightening, exciting, and laborious (much like writing a book review). The desired result is to make the essay stand out from 1000 othersto make the college admissions officer blink his or her heavy eyelids. Bauld gives entertaining and thought-provoking methods of accomplishing the task. His use of examples and corresponding responses from admissions officers is excellent. Despite the title, this book has value for anyone preparing to write. Annelle R. Huggins, Memphis State Univ. Libs.

This book is easy to read and is great whether you're going straight from high school or transferring from another college.
Bauld is a former admissions officer who really knows what he's talking about. I actually enjoyed reading this book because he is truly a great writer himself.
