Preparing for college can be such an overwhelming – yet exhilarating – time for every graduating high school senior.
“This has it all: good solid advice for new college students, with suggestions on tutoring and entertaining jokes to help you get through some of the sobering wisdom about sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll. Delightful cartoons, funny and useful quotes from real college students and a light-and-bright cadence make this one of the best guides on the college experience.”
Pulitzer Prize-winning author who has worked in the college business and served on trustee boards at Cornell and Princeton universities.
“So fun to read. The sort of book you can turn to any page and read for as long as you want and always get something valuable!”
Founder and Head of School, at the School for Ethics and Global Leadership

Turns out “How to Get Into College,” a quickly-forgotten, 1989 flop starring Nora Dunn & Phil Hartman as high-falutin’ college advisors, was not off-base. Just waaay ahead of its time. What a difference 30 years and the current pay-to-NOT-play scandal have made. Our editor, Alison Leigh Cowan, shares her take on all this, courtesy of the Washington Examiner.
