Bluestreak Books sent me a copy of Seventeen: College Goals AND is providing a prize pack for one of my lucky readers! Can’t wait to read more about this Insider’s Guide to Finding and Getting Into A College You’ll Love.
With a sophomore in high school, this book could not have been better timing. Things have changed drastically since the 80’s when I applied to college. Since this will my first child going through the process I am happy to have her journal/ plan her process as we try to negotiate the process. Did you remember reading SEVENTEEN Magazine? I do, and the book is light-hearted and written for the child, not the parent. Plus it gives her a place to express her feelings of the process somewhere safe. The process is stressful and as parents, we don’t make it any easier. I will be going through this book with my daughter too or maybe they should have a parent version. Find this college guidebook from Amazon.
BTW don’t stress out you don’t have one for your Freshman or Sophmore daughter, the book starts with the Junior Year. So far as a sophomore she has only been on a few campuses picked only for the different size and where we happen to be traveling/living.
The only thing standing between you and that college life is figuring out where you might want to go, completing your applications, writing a killer essay, scoring solid test scores, shining in your activities, getting glowing recommendations, and . . . okay, that’s a lot. But even though being accepted into college can seem big and overwhelming, it doesn’t have to be.
That’s where Seventeen: College Goals comes in. This stress-free guide—part-planner, part-journal—will help walk you through the step-by-step process of applying to colleges. There are pages filled with practical cheat sheets, handy life hacks, thoughtful tips, fun quizzes, inspiring quotes from your favorite celebs and leaders, and prompts that will push you to self-reflect. (After all, that’s what college essays are all about!) This way, you can freak out less about if you’ll get in, and actually start thinking about which school’s offer you’re going to accept.
