College Admission: From Application to Acceptance, Step by Step  

Menlo-Atherton Performing Arts Center, 555 Middlefield Rd., Atherton



College Admission is the ultimate user's manual and go-to guide for any student or family approaching the college application process. Featuring the wise counsel of more than 50 deans of admission, no other guide has such thorough, expert, compassionate, and professional advice.

Let’s be honest: applying to college can be stressful for students and parents. But here’s the good news: you can get in. Robin Mamlet has been dean of admission at three of America 's most selective colleges, and journalist and parent Christine VanDeVelde has been through the process first hand. With this book, you will feel like you have both a dean of admission and a parent who has been there at your side.

Inside this book, you'll find clear, comprehensive, and expert answers to all your questions along the way to an acceptance letter. This will be your definitive resource during the sophomore, junior, and senior years of high school.

ROBIN MAMLET is the former dean of admission at Stanford, Swarthmore, and Sarah Lawrence, where she made over 100,000 admission decisions. Today, she helps colleges and universities find and select their deans of admission, leading the Enrollment Search Practice for Witt/Kieffer.

Journalist CHRISTINE VANDEVELDE's work has appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle, Parenting, Self, and USA Today.
