The Truth about College Admission: A Family Guide to Getting in and Staying Together

Brennan Barnard, director of college counseling at the Derryfield School and College Admission Program Manager at the Making Caring Common Project at Harvard Graduate School of Education, visits Gibson's Bookstore to share his new college application process guidebook, The Truth About College Admission: A Family Guide to Getting in and Staying Together. Do you have a high school junior in your life that is starting to think about colleges? Now is the time to jump into planning to make senior year less stressful!

Is your family just starting to think about visiting colleges? Maybe you are in the throes of the experience, feeling stressed out and overwhelmed. Did we miss a deadline? Should we be looking in-state or out-of-state, big school or small school? And what is a "FAFSA" anyway?

The Truth about College Admission is the easy-to-follow, comprehensive, go-to guide for families. The expert authors--with inside knowledge from both the high school and university sides of the experience--provide critical advice, thoughtful strategies, helpful direction, and invaluable reassurance during the long and often bewildering college admission journey. From searching for colleges and creating a list of favorites to crafting an application, learning what schools are looking for academically and outside the classroom, and getting insight into how colleges decide who to accept, this book covers every important step. Helpful sections like "Try This," "Talk about This," and "Check In" show your family how to have open and balanced conversations to keep everyone on the same page, feeling less stressed, and actually enjoying the adventure together.

The Truth about College Admission is the practical and inspiring guidebook your family needs, an essential companion along the path to college acceptance.
