About the Book
Public school students CAN go to Ivy League schools. Do students really need the dedicated attention of a private school counselor in order to gain admissions to elite universities? What's the secret? Gain the tools and resources needed to compete with the world's top private school college counseling offices. Learn what you need to do in high school in order to stand out and to make a college want you. Recognize how to choose a school for yourself that suits your own needs and goals. Put your best self forward on college applications, in interviews, and during school visits. Know how to get your college experience paid for by others. Are you ready? Expert college counselor Mandee Heller Adler, founder of International College Counselors and graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and Harvard Business School, will help you help yourself in an easy-to-follow way. The secret is that you don't need deep pockets or a private school education to reach the Ivy League all you need is a little moxie, advanced planning, and this book!

My Take on the Book
This was a great book that walked you through the steps that you need to take if you too want to either be ready to apply and be accepted to an Ivy League College. I loved all of the tips and resources that are shared in the book as they made perfect sense. As someone that works in College Admissions, I found the book to be very easy to understand and to use for students and parents, but also for guidance counselors too. In reading this you can tell that the author has had a ton of experience that she is sharing with her readers. Her ideas were down to earth and truly showed that whether you are rich or poor, from a public or private education, you can still work your way into an Ivy League school if you are willing to work hard and plan for the future that you desire to attain. A great book that is truly motivational!
