Hardback book.. This is the only book that takes you inside the hectic offices of today's Ivy League admissions officers; how they work, how they think, how they handle an admissions application from the moment arrives at their door to the moment they make their decision. It is the only book that gives you the hard truths; whether you have a chance to get into an Ivy League school, how you can distinguish yourself from your competition, and how you can improve the odds that you will receive an A for admission.

If you are gung ho for an Ivy League school for your child, this guide will take you behind the doors of the admissions committee to processes you wouldn't imagine to be so complex and, sometimes, irrational. If you want to know how to game this system, here's the book for you. For our family, it was a real eye opener, and we ended up looking for high quality educational alternatives.
