Synopsis: The Ivy League admissions process has long been a highly competitive, cutthroat, and mysterious game, and success or failure often hinges not on an applicant's natural merit or intelligence, but on their skill at navigating these treacherous waters. Grace Sullivan maps out an insider's guide on how to play this game, how to work this high-stakes system, and how to maximize your odds of admission. Sullivan's daughter, currently a student at Harvard, was accepted by every school in the Ivy League, but her ease in gaining acceptances into the nation's most exclusive colleges often stunned her friends, for she wasn't regarded as a "nerd" or "child prodigy." The secret to her success lay in her preparation and the decisions made along her academic path. She knew how to play the game. The reality is most students are truly capable of getting A's and acing standardized exams. Many students who initially do poorly on standardized exams then excel when re-taking with the proper preparation, while many very advanced students often don't score as high as they could have because they failed to prepare in the best, most efficient fashion. This book is for the students who want to achieve their goals; this is the blueprint Sullivan used to give her daughter an academic edge and ace the SAT without spending a dime on tutoring. Every year so many parents think they can solve the Ivy admissions puzzle by throwing money at it - in the form of review books or prep courses or tutoring. The truth is that each year some B students get into Harvard while hundreds with perfect scores get rejected, and the difference is in the blueprint they followed. They played the game. Now it's your turn. -What are the Ivy League schools really looking for? What are the pitfalls to avoid? -How many AP courses should I take? -When and how should i prepare for the SAT's or ACT's? What are the finer points of the math sections that aren't covered in review books? -How can middle schoolers build the best foundation for high school? ...and much more. GRACE SULLIVAN has been a teacher and a tutor for the last 18 years at some of the best private schools in the nation. She recently completed a research project for one Ivy League university on the finer points of achieving success on the math portion of the SAT. She has also tutored and supervised hundreds of students from public, private, and home-schools alike, helping them achieve tremendous success in applying to the Ivy League by properly advising them on their academic paths.

About the Author: I have been a teacher and a tutor for the last 18 years at some of the best private schools in the nation, and have recently completed a research project for one Ivy League university on the finer points of achieving success on the math portion of the SAT. I have also tutored and supervised hundreds of students from public, private, and home-schools alike, helping them achieve tremendous success applying to the Ivy League by properly advising them on their academic paths. My daughter, currently a student at Harvard, was accepted by every school in the Ivy League, but her ease in gaining acceptance into the nation’s most exclusive colleges often surprised some of her friends as she wasn’t regarded as a “nerd” or “child prodigy.” The secret to her success lay in her preparation and the decisions we made along her academic path. I wrote this book because I firmly believe that most students are capable of getting A’s and acing standardized exams. Many students who initially do poorly on standardized exams then excel when re-taking with the proper preparation, while many very advanced students often don't score as high as they could have because they failed to prepare in the best, most efficient fashion. I wrote this book to help all those students who want to excel in life and achieve their goals; I want to share the blueprint I used to give my daughter an academic edge and ace the SAT without spending a dime on tutoring. - Grace B. Sullivan
