College Admission Bibliography

 

Some of the books are available for purchase at Prometheus Tutors.

 

We have found the following books useful to a broad range of students and families.

 

What Colleges Don’t Tell You, Elizabeth Wissner-Gross

For parents of a student who expects to choose among the Ivy Leagues and other highly selective colleges.

 

What High Schools Don’t Tell You, by Elizabeth Wissner-Gross

For parents of all students.

Will your student stand out?

What can your student say about:

·        Passions and fire in the belly? (academics, sports, hobbies, extra-curricular, etc.)

·        Intense experiences?

·        Taking initiative?

What can your student talk about all day?

Is your student PROACTIVE?

 

Looking Beyond the Ivy League, Loren Pope

For parents of a student who expects to attend a highly selective college.

 

Colleges That Change Lives, Loren Pope (www.ctcl.org)

For the parents of a student looking for that special fit:

·        Stimulating and exciting colleges

·        SAT or ACT is NOT required

 

Cool Colleges, Donald Asher (www.donaldasher.com)

Great and enjoyable book about interesting colleges and types of colleges:

·        Four Schools That Are Kicking Butt

·        Schools Where Scholarship is Honored

·        Great Books Programs

.

Write Your College Essay in Less Than a Day, Elizabeth Wissner-Gross

·        One of the best organized, in terms of helping to focus students’ writing efforts

·        The “Less than a Day,” premise is, of course, ludicrous!
