The Truth about College Admission Workbook

A Family Organizer for Your College Search

College admission has always been complicated—and COVID-19 has changed the college search and selection process in profound and challenging ways. But the authors behind the best-selling The Truth about College Admission are here to help with a new college admission workbook that puts the complex process into the hands of students and those who support them. Packed with activities and exercises, it's designed to help students find multiple colleges where they can not only get in, afford to go, and thrive on campus but also enjoy the adventure along the way.

From building a balanced list of schools to research and visit to writing essays, preparing for interviews, and ultimately choosing a college to attend, the interactive exercises in this comprehensive workbook provide students with important questions to ask, information to consider, and the preparation they need to help them focus more on how they ultimately arrive on a college campus rather than precisely where their journey takes them. If done right, college counselor Brennan Barnard and undergraduate admission director Rick Clark demonstrate, college admission can be more like the college experience itself—an opportunity to grow, learn, discover, enjoy, and build close, lasting relationships.

A companion resource to The Truth about College Admission: A Family Guide to Getting In and Staying Together, each chapter in this guide is designed to help high school classes, small study groups, or individual students and their families focus on the most important questions to ask, steps to take, and conversations to have as they apply to college. Full of accurate information and experience-based insight, this workbook cuts out the noise and stress, instead encouraging students to reflect, research, and regain perspective.

About the Authors

Brennan Barnard is the director of college counseling at the Derryfield School. He also serves as the college admission program advisor for the Harvard Graduate School of Education's Making Caring Common project. Rick Clark is the director of undergraduate admission at the Georgia Institute of Technology.

Reviews

"This workbook will be a hit among college counselors."—Ann Marie Strauss, Director of College Counseling, The Bryn Mawr School

"This book gives students and their families the tools needed to reflect on why they want to go to college, how to best learn, and beyond. Instead of simply sharing advice about what to do, this guidebook offers students the practical exercises that empower them to own their journey."—Angel B. Pérez, CEO, National Association for College Admission Counseling

"Thanks to the internet and social media, we have more information today about getting into college, yet families have never felt so powerless in the process. Following up on their useful college admission guide, Barnard and Clark put their wisdom into a workbook that launches students and parents on a fulfilling and meaningful college search toward finding the right fit in a campus."—Jeff Selingo, author of Who Gets In and Why: A Year Inside College Admissions

"Barnard and Clark have created a guide for the college search and admission process that provides students and families with the language, definitions, key questions to ask, and guidance needed to reduce the stress and anxiety that can sometimes come with the college search and admission process. The Truth about College Admission Workbook is the resource that college admission professionals will use with their own children—I know that it will be our go-to source as my son begins his college search this next year."—Rachelle Hernandez, University of Texas at Austin
