Description & Features

Who is this kid? That's what the College Deans of Admissions want to know. That's why this book is written for you. It will help you think about what kind of student, friend, son, or daughter you are. It will give you exercises to write and think about and to talk about with your family and friends. You will use what you learn about yourself as you search the colleges, as you write the college applications, write the essay, take a college tour, and as you interview online or in person. Your job is to separate yourself from the hundreds of other American and international students who are applying to the same colleges and universities.

Product Reviews Write a review for this product

"As the father of a now 25-year-old only child, I still vividly recall the murkiness (at least for us) of the college application process, the angst and confusion, the seemingly endless paperwork, the almost metronomic regularity with which our bright, talented daughter spun out of control over what tone and topic to set in revealing herself to an unseen audience when the stakes felt unnervingly high. It doesn't have to be that way. Who Is This Kid? Colleges Want to Know! breathes light and air into the college application process by providing a structured approach to getting the right things on paper. Leading with authenticity is a key factor in distinguishing oneself amidst the throng of applicants, and this fine book is filled with wisdom and exercises that help the student do just that. Page after page of guidance and carefully-crafted questions stimulate students to get at the heart of what sets them apart, along with ample space in which to put down answers. Through these wondrously effective exercises a blessed clarity emerges, and with it, a calming sense of preparedness that enables the entire household to breathe a collective sigh of relief." - Tillywig Parents' Favorite Product Award Review,
