Berkeley, CA (PRWEB) August 15, 2006 -—
Everybody Else’s Guide To Getting Into College, a new book by Boston University graduate Deshannee’ Johnice, promises to help any student get into college, “even if you’re a procrastinator with just okay grades, test scores that suck, no real hobbies and your folks are broke.” The book explains the college preparation, admissions and financial aid processes, and even identifies colleges that do not require admission tests and colleges that have no admissions requirements.
Everybody Else’s Guide To Getting Into College is a step-by-step college preparation and admissions guide for the not-so-perfect student. The Guide includes detailed instructions, or Action Plans, that allow students to skip ahead to the “meat” so they can get started preparing right away. There is an Action Plan for “Improving Your GPA”, “Improving Your Test Scores”, “Selecting Colleges That Will Accept You”, “Paying for College”, and many more.
Unlike most other college preparation books, Everybody Else’s Guide To Getting Into College doesn’t assume students have years to prepare, or that they have access to lots of resources. Instead, the book focuses on the reality of where the student is today and helps him/her get to college.
Johnice wrote Everybody Else’s Guide To Getting Into College to help students like her young cousins and neighbors, who had all but given up on going to college, build a college admissions strategy and application that would change their future prospects. Johnice is firmly committed to the belief that the difference between success and failure is exposure. Drawing on her own college experience, and her subsequent career success, Johnice concluded that it was her exposure to college -— the professors, the other students, a city away from home, the classes -— that enabled her to achieve success in her career.
Johnice, an excellent student who was accepted at University of Chicago, University of Pennsylvania and Boston College, in addition to Boston University, shares the benefits of her college admissions success in hopes that students who are not as prepared for college as she was can still benefit from the exposure to a college education, and the success that exposure can bring.
Everybody Else’s Guide To Getting Into College is a must-have guide for any student who thinks he/she cannot go to college. The book provides insightful information, facts and real-world strategies for improving grades and test scores, selecting schools that will accept the student, avoiding admissions tests and still getting in, and paying for college.
