This book provides the most thorough analysis of early admissions programs to date. It details the advantages and pitfalls of applying early, giving students and parents the information they need to navigate the process. Unlike college admissions guides, Joining the Elite does not equivocate on the subject of applying early. Having carefully analyzed admissions data from fourteen elite colleges-and interviewed dozens of students, counselors and admissions officers-the authors provide an honest assessment of the value of early applications. Applying early may not be for everyone. But it will improve- and sometimes double, and even triple-your chances of getting into a prestigious college.""
