Compiled in “real time” as one family went through the college search. Life’s Little College Admission Insights best selling author and his college bound daughter have compiled an easy to read, ingest and act on “insider” best in class tips to help make the college search easier right from the beginning! The book is intended to be a “jump starter” for collegiate research and to be used before you ever pick up one of the many wonderful, yet sometimes overwhelming college directories and guides on the market today. Top experts across the country were interviewed and have given many wise and different opinions on what’s important from their own first hand experience advising hundreds of thousands of students in their careers. After a rigorous search and selection process, professional advisors and counselors were asked the same questions including the one college tip that nobody ever seems to know about; the first piece of advice top counselors give their own children; the one piece of advice they have given that’s worked best; what students have to do differently today from even a year ago; and to add a little education to the process for college bound students, advice with an SAT word in it! Eric and Cole Yaverbaum have also given a look into their own thought process during the search and include invaluable informational resources including where to look for financial aid, a detailed timeline for when to do what, test preparation information, athletics and even the sample essay Cole used on her applications to get into college. While many adults look back on their college years as the best time of their life, nobody ever seems to say the same about the college application and selection process. Life’s Little College Admission Insights makes the search process as enjoyable and easy as possible from day one. Enjoy the search!
