Proven Admissions Strategies from Successful Students
In How They Got into Harvard, fifty successful applicants to Harvard University share their tips and tactics for succeeding in the college admissions process. The students profiled in this book were not all class valedictorians, star athletes, or Harvard "legacies." In fact, many were simply strong all-around applicants who beat the odds and got into one of the country's most selective institutions. Through each concise account of a single student's résumé and admissions story, you'll learn lessons and strategies that you can use on your own applications.
In all, eight key admissions strategies are addressed, including:
-How to identify and present a key talent
-How to make your well-roundedness an asset, not a weakness
-How to forge connections and use them to your advantage
Each student profile also includes all their vital information, including:
-Test scores and GPA
-Extracurricular activities and awards
-Family background and hometown
