Analysis | Your 2018 summer reading list — from an unusual group of recommenders

College planning? Check out this summer reading list straight from #admissionsofficers & #collegecounselors. Throw a book or 2 in your beach-bag! And, I guess, as a former #AO, I’ll add to the list - @gladwell Malcom Gladwell #thetippingpoint. #collegeadmissions. A list of nearly 40 fiction and nonfiction books to read this summer, as suggested by college admissions counselors and deans.

Good luck to ED applicants receiving decisions this week!

Sidenote: website and email are back up and running.; [email protected] College admissions consultants guide students through the application process

#Collegeadmissions is starting to wrap up. ED/EA students will begin to hear in December. Final RD deadlines usually hit in January but well-prepared applicants have submitted well before that.

Now peak #graduateadmissions begins. It’s both similar and quite different from

Please note that my contact information is working and I can be reached by phone or email. I can still take on a few clients depending on needs, so don’t hesitate to reach out. The consultation is free. And this photo captures the absolute essence of college admissions! Yes, really! 🏛📚📆

To meet an application deadline, you must submit your application materials by 11:59 pm on the deadline date posted on your Dashboard. The end of the deadline date is in your local time zone, not the college's time zone. Keep in mind, all timestamps are recorded in EST (US Eastern Standard Time). It...

Common Application

An old but goodie in case anyone is wondering.

A November 1 deadline means that you can submit your application through 11:59 PM Eastern Time on November 1. So for those of you who thought you'd have to miss out on Halloween fun tonight, no worries: you can have your candy and ED too.
