It’s the Student, Not the College: The Secrets of Succeeding at Any School – Without Going Broke or Crazy
Modern American parents are obsessed with thrusting their children into the most prestigious college possible to guarantee financial security and success. Kristin White, drawing from her extensive expertise in educational consulting, explains the flaws of such thinking: though the students who graduate from selective schools usually do have more success, it is only because selective colleges intentionally admit only the best students; the student, not the school, determines future success. Students and their families should focus on crafting an outstanding individual rather than acceptance to a mantling university.
The greatest regret of my life is that I did not read this book earlier. The hard facts and piercing common sense compel, not acceptance to a dream college, but development into the kind of person who achieves success. In addition to the main premise of the book, mentioned above, the text also elucidate strategies for financial security, mental well-being, obtaining a world-class education, and networking, both before and after admission. Every family in America should have a copy of this book mounted above their hearth, and everyone should read it at least twice. The greatest regret of my life is that I did not read this book earlier.
