A former Ivy League admissions officer, Joie Jager-Hyman follows five bright and eager high schoolers”students from diverse ethnic, social, and financial backgrounds”as they each put their best foot forward on the road they hope will lead them to the hallowed halls of Harvard University.
At once a remarkable true story of dedication, achievement, and heartbreak and a guide for success in an ultra-competitive environment, this important work deserves a place in the home of every family that has ever dreamed of receiving that coveted œfat envelope in the mail. Jager-Hyman also offers a startlingly frank appraisal of the college admission process and the important roles race and class continue to play in a student's efforts to attend the best school possible.
