College Admissions Cracked : Saving Your Kid (and Yourself) from the Madness Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


So, your child is a high school junior. You've heard other parents with kids older than yours whisper the word "college" like it was a terminal disease.

You've seen their taut, maniacal grins as they try to hold it together.

The process of weathering and conquering the college admissions process with a teenager is a daunting affair for many.

Advice will pour in through friends, your child's guidance counselor, and your mother's neighbor's cousin. Thankfully, Jill Margaret Shulman, a college admissions coach, application evaluator, college writing instructor, essayist, author, and empathetic parent, is here to be your fiercest ally.

She'll guide you through the entire crazy ritual that college admissions has become, month by month, breath by deep, cleansing breath, until you drop your kid off at college where she will ignore your phone calls and texts.

Come as you are -- whether chill or roiling with anxiety -- and Shulman, along with a platoon of experts and fellow parents, will help you maintain your strength and sense of self-worth, so easily lost somewhere between your teenager's screaming, "I hate you!

You're ruining my life!" and typing your credit card number into the College Board's website for the twentieth time.

You've got college admissions cracked, and now, this book has got your back.
