Description: For the millions of high school students -- as well as their parents, teachers, and school counselors -- who search each year tot the perfect college, here is a reality check! Written by, yes, a Harvard grad, this back-to-earth guide rebuts the perception that image is everything and emphasizes the truth: People are measured by their talent and energy and not simply by the name and reputation of their chosen educational institution. The bottom-line emphasis encourages students to seriously consider less-exclusive schools with outstanding programs and qualities that offer countless opportunities. Practical information and insider tips include:
-- The Hidden Gem List: The top 100 underappreciated universities that get great reviews from students
-- A one-of-a-kind, personal questionnaire to determine the right college for each student
-- Tips on filling out applications, writing essays, visiting campuses, and surviving the admission process
-- The truth about rankings in the U.S. News & World Report and other magazines
-- And much more valuable insight!
