Acing Admissions is the only guide you need to help navigate the US undergraduate studies application process. Written with the international student in mind, Acing Admissions outlines frameworks for developing a college list, provides a step-by-step guide to submitting your application and describes the range of financial aid options available to international students. The book also gives detailed timelines with checkpoints for students who want to start planning as early as 8th grade. Practical advice is conveyed through anecdotes and case studies featuring real applicant stories, based on the authors’ years of experience running an education consulting practice for students and families living outside the US.
