MEDIA REVIEWS
"This should become required reading for current and prospective college students (and their parents) who want the inside scoop from a legendary professor on why college remains a wise investment, and a doorway to a fuller life. It offers practical, step-by-step advice on issues from finding a mentor, to student debt and rising tuition costs. Schwarz bolsters his wise commentary with testimonials from current and former students, as well as other professors and administrators." Daniel Morris, Purdue "A feast of common sense at a time when common sense is not so common. The friendly conversational style of Schwarz's book will make it a valued companion as students and their parents navigate what looks from the outside like a mysterious terrain. He brings it down to earth." Stanley Fish, Florida International University "There are many books on the college admissions process, but this invaluable book surpasses all of them, addressing not only the admissions process but also the entire college experience. Chapter by chapter, Professor Dan Schwarz takes the reader whether a high school senior or a college undergraduate from freshman through senior year as well as advising on how to prepare for graduate schools and post-college employment. He also offers parents wisdom on how to deal with their children's college experience. Informed by painstaking research and drawn from decades of personal experience teaching and advising college students, Schwarz, a much-honored and beloved Cornell University professor, understands the obstacles and opportunities young adults face and what they need in order to grow and flourish, not just in their college and professional careers, but in their lives." Lisa Esposito Kok, Independent College Consultant
