About the Book

When you’re in high school, you only have three years to make an academic, social, and leadership statement that will convince college admissions officers that you’re a great fit for their schools—so you make each year count.

While you probably know the credits you need to graduate and what courses colleges want to see on your transcript, you need to do more to capture their attention. In this guide to the college admissions process, you’ll learn how to showcase interests and activities on your application. Learn how to:

• develop amazing content to strengthen your resume;
• take control of your high school activities and the college process;
• articulate robust experiences to colleges you may want to attend; and
• chart an intentional path on your college-bound journey.

By focusing on the three “IN’ factors—interests, involvement, and being an influencer—you’ll be showcasing talents and accomplishments as you navigate the college admissions process.
