This alternative college guide from a former Dartmouth assistant admissions director-turned-consultant gives non-straight-A students advice on the many options available to them and tips on how to identify, gain admittance to, and pay for the schools that will allow them to flourish.

Less-than-perfect grades? No problem!
Contrary to popular opinion, you don’t need to have a 4.0 GPA or a perfect jump shot to get into a good college. This insider’s guide reveals easy tweaks that will pay off big-time in showing admissions officers that you as a whole—not just your SAT scores—are a perfect fit for their incoming class. With stellar advice on getting into schools that will allow you to thrive, this handbook reveals how to:
 
Find great colleges that are a good match for your strengths (and will overlook less-relevant weaknesses)
Painlessly beef up your application
Tailor extracurriculars to showcase your uniqueness
Make sure your recommendation letters emphasize the right qualities
Write original essays that reveal traits beyond your transcript
Make an impression on admissions officers and college interviewers
Create an early-admissions strategy to increase your likelihood of acceptance
Help your chances if you’re deferred
Get into brand-name schools through the side door
Communicate about learning disabilities or special circumstances
Get scholarship money based on attributes other than grades
Customize your financial aid strategy
