Have you ever wondered what the exact, ordered steps are that you need to take to get accepted into the college of your dreams? If so, the Ivy League Admissions Gold Book is what you are looking for. The book provides a fresh, in-depth take on elite college admissions and the high school path to getting accepted by elite colleges. It was written by a current student at Stanford University, who graduated from high school not too long ago himself. The book is unlike others in that it was written from the perspective of a recent high school graduate for other current high school students. Other admissions guide books boast having authors and contributors with fancy, academic titles and admissions experts who previously worked in higher education. All that these aged "experts" do, however, is leave the reader with out-of-date information that lacks specific strategies and only provide vague, textbook-like directions that fail to give the reader an edge in the admissions process. The Gold Book does just the opposite. The Gold Book reveals the real-life knowledge and experience of someone who actually went through the process himself of applying to and getting accepted into elite colleges. This guide is not written for parents, counselors, or even adults. The guide is written for teenagers. This means the ideas in the book are not convoluted and vague, but instead, clear and direct. The Gold Book uses non-diluted, raw information to effectively and efficiently lay out what a student can do in high school to nearly guarantee themselves a spot in their dream school. After being rejected by the local Gifted & Talented Program early on in his high school career, the author of the Gold Book was eventually accepted into Stanford, Yale, UC Berkeley, and other elite universities during his final year of high school. He knows exactly what it takes to make it into these elite schools and has finally shared it all in the Gold Book.
