Before the Application: How to Become the Ideal College Candidate (A Step-by-Step Guide to Making Each Year of High School Count)
Why do so many capable high schoolers fail to earn coveted college acceptances and scholarships? Why are a lot of competent teenagers not prepared for the transition to college level work? The answer is simple: most students (and their families!) do not realize that they must carefully plan from the beginning of ninth grade in order to attain an impressive profile for their college applications, and have no idea what colleges are searching for in a candidate until it is too late. In this well organized and thorough guide, Geary Woolfolk reveals his approach to creating a highly competitive college profile from the perspective of a family who has been there before. This book includes key strategies for identifying what colleges are looking for in an applicant, vigilantly planning each year of high school, and ensuring college readiness.
