Based on the real-life experiences of students who were admitted to America's most prestigious universities, this guide provides proven strategies to get into and pay for any college. Detailing what high schoolers—from freshmen to seniors—can do to prepare, this updated edition addresses recent changes in admissions and financial aid processes and the increasingly popular early-admissions option. Examples of applications, interviews, and 23 actual college-admission essays complement information on how parents can help without hurting, what it takes to ace the new SAT and ACT, and where students can find free cash for tuition. Stories of students' successes and failures reveal how the college admissions and financial aid processes really work, while giving a personal face to what is often seen as an impersonal experience.

News Flash: Get Into Any College: Secrets Of Harvard Students was recently one of three finalists for the prestigious Benjamin Franklin Award which recognizes excellence in independent publishing. Publications, grouped by genre, were judged on editorial and design merit by top practitioners in each field.From the Author:
You might think that you practically have to be a future president, concert pianist, or mathematical genius to get into your dream school. This is a common myth. After successfully gaining admission to every school to which we applied and through intensive research and interviews with dozens of students, we realized that there are strategies that are common among successful students in admissions. These are strategies that allow good students to get into great schools.
With this discovery, we knew we wanted to help future students like you, to be your personal guides through the admissions process, to show you through the examples of others how to build the most powerful application possible. What better way to learn how to succeed in admissions than from students who have already succeeded?
We feel privileged to have helped thousands of students through the maze of college admissions, and we'd like to help you toward receiving that coveted acceptance letter from your dream school as well.
-Gen and Kelly Tanabe
