This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
There is a crisis that millions of families face each fall: how to get their child into highly selective colleges. In 2014, the Ivy League received almost 250,000 applications for 14,000 spots, while one of the top public universities, UCLA, received over 85,000 applications for 5,800 spots in its freshman class. This crisis spirals out of control as the number of applicants from the U.S. and abroad skyrockets.
Whether your child dreams of attending Harvard or UCLA, Earning Admission is the blueprint that empowers your child to use strategic planning and marketing to stand out amongst a sea of applicants and earn admission. This step-by-step guide to earning admission teaches:
•How your child can select and take classes in high school to stand out from other straight 'A' students.
•How your child can dramatically increase her odds of admission by strategically choosing a major.
•How your child can write a personal statement that sets her apart from other applicants by demonstrating perspective, passion, and maturity.
•How your child can build a slate of extracurricular activities that admissions officers value.
•How your child can secure hundreds of thousands of dollars of merit scholarships or need-based grants even if your family earns over $100,000 per year.

I found the book quite helpful for my college admission planning. It was very straight forward and me a lot of tips and confidence in applying to schools I never dreamed of getting into . I may hit the author up as a college consultant.
A must have for any parent!
When we started thinking about our child’s college search we realized we didn’t know the first place to turn! Luckily, Earning Admission was recommended to us and we’ve been using it the whole way. The book does a wonderful job of taking the stress out of the process and giving us confidence that our child is on the right track to a great school.
This Book is an excellent resource for prospective students!
I really loved this book. My daughter will be going to college soon and this book was very informative!! I learned a lot about getting recommendations, applying to specific colleges and about what colleges look for in a potential student. A very good read!!!
