What to Expect: College admissions, authenticity, career goals, application support
For many high school juniors and seniors, getting into the right college is a top source of stress. Mounting competition and increasingly complex guidelines can make it seem impossible to find the right college and get accepted, even if a student does make it successfully through the mountains of paperwork. Get Real and Get In provides both inspiration and practical techniques and strategies not only for breaking through the stress and complexity of this task but also for setting life and career goals focused on what students really want from life.
Part writing guide and part life coach, Get Real and Get In is a rare combination of actionable advice and motivational text. Instead of pushing students to meet the demands of the market, the institution, and a society that insists on rigid definitions of success, this guide helps students think through college as part of a long-term life journey, with an emphasis on setting goals that will enable them to fulfill their life passions and dreams. The prose is engaging, dialoging with readers rather than talking down to them, and a range of workshop activities help students process the advice through action.
Get Real and Get In: How to Get into the College of Your Dreams by Being Your Authentic Self is a volume not only about getting into college but about being true to oneself—a valuable message in today’s materialistic world.
