Is College Planning Driving You Crazy?

Somehow, watching as your children decide which schools to apply to is as stressful for you as it is for them. If youve found yourself contemplating essay forgery, scheduling five college tours for a single holiday weekend, and obsessively checking the U.S. News and World Report rankings, you may be on the verge of freaking out. But as a parent, its important to (try to) remain calm and help keep everything in perspective.

Written specifically for parents and their college-bound teens, Getting In Without Freaking Out is an insiders guide to the application process by professional college coach Arlene Matthews. Years of experience have taught her the secrets of playing the admissions game without all the anxiety. Now, Arlene shares what admissions officers wont tell you—that getting into a great college isnt as hard as it seems! Youll learn . . .

• How to get into a top college without ever taking the SATs

• Why a little procrastination never hurt anyone

• Why applying to fewer schools increases the chances of acceptance

• What really matters when your child goes off to college—and beyond

As entertaining as it is practical and realistic, Getting In Without Freaking Out is the only guide of its kind—one that helps you get through the getting-in process with grace, good humor, and knowledge that will enhance your students chance of success.

Synopsis:

From a college admissions coach and psychologist comes an official college handbook for overwhelmed parents. Includes more than 100 secrets for easing the stress and offers helpful lessons about what really matters.
