  • You may think you know the in’s and out’s of college admissions but, Who Gets In and Why: A Year Inside College Admissions by Jeffrey Selingo gives you the fly on the wall view of what actually happens inside the admissions office. He also challenges the notion of what makes a good college and delves into what actually determines an acceptance.
  • In Where You’ll Go Is Not Who You’ll Be: An Antidote to the College Admissions Mania Frank Bruni challenges the notion of a college being a determining factor for the kind of person a student becomes way past their classroom days. The college process, which can be anxiety inducing and intense for some students and parents, can be eased by understanding what actually matters to employers and graduate schools and in post-college life in general.
