Don’t Stalk the Admissions Officer

The Choice, a New York Times blog, reviewed two recently published college admissions books  —  Don’t Stalk the Admissions Officer: How to Survive the College Admissions Process without Losing Your Mind, for students, and I’m Going to College—Not You!: Surviving the College Search with Your Child for parents. “Don’t Stalk the Admissions Officer”  by Risa Lewak,  is humorous a guide for high school students. The three-part book will keep the reader laughing:

  • Part One: “Enjoy High School Now, Avoid Therapy Later” which asserts that “Overachiever and Loser Have the Same Latin Root”
  • Part Two: “Hot Sweats, Cold Sweats, and Difficulty Breathing — Either You’re Applying to College or You Have Malaria”
  • Part Three: “The Envelope Arrives: Whatever Happens, Don’t Take It Out on the Mailman”
“I’m Going To College — Not You!” (St. Martin’s Press, 2010) contains a collection of essays written for parents by parents. Read more at: The Choice ]]>
