 Colleges are deluged with applications and the college application process has become the most traumatic thing that most students and their parents have ever experienced.  Lots of books tell you how to get into college, but this book uniquely provides emotional, instead of tactical, support.

.

About

The stories in the book are written by kids who have been there and want to pass on their words of support to the kids behind them.  Stories cover topics such as parental and peer pressure, the stress of grades and SATs/ACTs, college applications and interviews, recruiting, disappointments and success.  These stories provide moral support and encouragement to high school students going through one of the most stressful events of their lives.  Parents will find this book a great source of support and inspiration as well.

Applying to college is traumatic and it's great to hear stories from other kids who have been through it. Colleges are deluged with applications and the college application process has become traumatic and all-consuming. In the portable "support group" for high school students, kids share their stories of:

  • SAT and ACT testing madness
  • Parental pressure – and support
  • Stress and the need to "have a life"
  • Road trips, interviews, and auditions
  • Disappointments and silver linings
  • Gap years and other alternative paths to higher education
  • Not getting in anywhere
  • And all the other facets of the college application process!

 

Testimonials

"The best counsel of all comes from reading the real stories of those who have known first-hand the anxiety and uncertainty of the college application process."

"Finally, a resource that focuses on the process and experience of applying to college instead of on how to get in. Authentic, emotive, and entertaining -- a necessary read for all college bound students." 

- Ryan Chang, Founder and CEO, Ivy Consulting Group

"What a valuable addition to that big stack of SAT, ACT, and college guides! Chicken Soup for the Soul: Teens Talk Getting In... to College really puts the whole college application process in perspective. Insight can make the unknown a very fun and rewarding experience, and that's exactly what this book will give you." 

- Kent Healy, Author of "Cool Stuff" They Should Teach in School, and The Success Principles for Teens
