    1. Helpful overview for folks starting to think about the college selection process. Read early (definitely before junior year). Also helpful for students to hear what their parents have been telling them, from a different voice so maybe they'll listen

    2. Great guide for parents and students needing a down-to-earth walk through the admissions process. The 1 hour college finder is a great tool! One of my favorite books. - Ashley McCarrick, Corporate Director

    3. Somewhat helpfulould have started reading it the summer before my daughters junior year or soonert at the start of senior year.
