How to Survive Getting Your Kid Into College

Getting into college has become an obsession — and not just with anxious students. Parents, too, are intensely involved in all aspects of the search and application process. “Expert” advice is easy to find, but nothing beats the hard-won wisdom of those in the front lines — the parents of recent high school graduates who ran the application gauntlet and lived to tell about it. In this handy, upbeat guide, hundreds of parents discuss their thoughts, strategies, struggles — even their failures — in navigating this tricky process. Filled with tips, tricks, humor, and horror stories, it's a book to help parents help their kids — and themselves — succeed. Compiled by admissions consultant Rachel Korn, the book includes do’s and don’ts, common sense psychology, valuable perspectives, and much more. How to Survive Getting Your Kid Into College tosses a lifeline to every stressed-out parent of a prospective collegian.
