Written by a former senior admissions officer at Harvard University, this book provides keen insights into what it takes to get into America's top schools. With the help of case studies of successful Harvard applicants, Charles Hughes II defines the goals and mission of highly selective schools. He explains the relative weight given to:

  • Academics
  • Extra-curricular activities
  • Personal qualities
  • Intangibles in the admission process

    Hughes breaks down the components of the application, explaining the significance of each and how they are evaluated. And, drawing upon his extensive experience, he clues readers in on effective ways for applicants to improve their candidacy, including:

    • How to prepare early in high school
    • How to write a better application
    • How to find the school best suited to their interests, personality, and goals

      With this essential guide, students will be able to present their talents in the best light possible, and create a winning college application.
