Tackling College Admissions: Sanity + Strategy = Success
Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, Incorporated, 2008 - Education - 227 pages
Every year millions of parents shepherd their teens through the arduous college admissions process. They are bombarded with too much information and with destructive and pervasive college admissions myths. Tackling College Admissions: Sanity + Strategy = Success by Cheryl Paradis and Faren R. Siminoff provides just what the college admissions doctor needs: sanity, perspective, and common sense. The racecourse to college admissions is littered with obstacles some anticipated, some unexpected. However, with knowledge and a little humor, virtually all teens can cross the finish line into that good-fit college. Paradis and Siminoff offer a simple, two-part approach to college admissions. Part I shows parents how to become effective coaches through employing self and teen assessment and discarding the college myths. Part II takes parents through the ins-and-outs of the college admissions process, alerting them to potential hurdles and teaching them effective, easy-to-implement strategies to overcome these."
