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 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.

Great Narrator

As the father of a current high school junior, it has been a long time since I explored the admission process. This guide is a very up to date, informative explanation of the current admission process. Additionally, the narrator is great.
