ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
How We Beat the Odds is an audio series created by two Princeton University students and college advisors about the college admissions process. They discuss each aspect of the college admissions process, from the SAT and ACT tests to extracurriculars to financing a college education. Taking an informal style to discuss each of 11 topics regarding the college application and admissions process, they explain what worked for them and their experience in applying and being admitted to several elite colleges.

Each has experience working with students in the college admissions process, having extensively tutored and taught SAT and ACT test prep courses resulting in 100-550 point increases in student scores. Many of the topics that were misunderstood by the students that they worked with are covered in the course; clearing up many misconceptions that often exist about the college admissions process, particularly at Ivy League and other elite universities. If you are a high school student, or the parent of a high school student, then this course is for you. How We Beat the Odds covers what you can do to improve your college admissions chances whether you've just begun your high school career or if you're a high school senior planning to submit applications in a matter of weeks.

An extremely accessible guide to Ivy League admissions process
I have checked out many admission prep guides both online and in-print, and have found this one to be by far the most accessible and practical in the way it distills the key admissions topics to focus on and offers advice to aspiring applicants. The two authors are able to provide an especially credible voice on this subject given their close proximity to each of the topics as ongoing Princeton students. This unique perspective really sets this series apart. from the rest. I'd recommend it to any applicant or parent of an applicant looking for an extremely accessible guide to the Ivy League admissions process. Well worth the money!
