Written within an educational framework, this handbook offers general guidance to help students do a self-assessment and select the top eight colleges that are the strongest fit for them. Establishing readers as anthropologists, students will learn to observe 20 campus cultures, assess each one, and research their options in American higher education. Additionally, it offers several basic assumptions that are contrary to common knowledge about getting into college. Written by a college counselor with decades of experience, this guide offers insight into the college admissions process and allows students to hone in on the schools that are right for them.
