YA-- High-school students need their parents to be involved in the search for the right college. This title encourages parents to help their children, and then provides the information which will give them the wisdom and confidence to complete this transition period successfully. Students will also benefit from using the book to understand the questions facing their parents as well as themselves. The book covers the basics of the admissions and financial aid process from a parent's perspective, but offers far more than the traditional how-to-get-into-college advice by including suggestions for high-school graduation presents that will be useful the following year and creative ways of holding down college expenses. Besides dealing with the logistics of getting in, Shields carefully addresses sensitive personal issues that arise as seniors prepare to leave home and family. Practical advice is offered which will help everyone involved prepare for the changes ahead, especially for families going through the college admissions process for the first time. This book is easily understood, clearly written, and will be heavily used.
