This March, Abbeville Press is publishing In! College Admissions and Beyond: The Experts’ Proven Strategy for Success by Lillian Luterman and Jennifer Bloom. This strikes me as the perfect library book, and they’re doing a hardcover edition with all of you librarians in mind (there will also be a simultaneous paperback edition.)
The “experts” are a mother-daughter author team with more than 20 years of experience working with students to get them into boarding school, college and graduate school. They’ve developed a program that seems to really work. College is getting so competitive that I can’t even imagine what the situation will be like when my daughter heads off in 18 years (just had a minor heart attack writing that.) This book offers an early edge, starting with what kids can do in their freshman year of high school to get ahead. And the authors cover the entire process of selecting and getting admitted to school, not just filling out applications.
Definitely a book to have on the shelf when the research starts this spring!
