Summary:

"Dr. Aviva Legatt, professor, counselor, and admissions officer in the Ivy League, wants to let students in on a secret: admissions offices are sick of seeing the same cookie-cutter applications. What were once considered best practices for "doing high school right" are now so commonplace that they have become a liability. Get Real and Get In teaches readers to think outside of the box and focus on what admissions officers are really looking for--young people who dare to be their most authentic selves. Get Real and Get In is designed to ignite an essential mindset shift in students: stop trying to just "get in" and start figuring out exactly what you want from life and how to get it. Stop managing the impressions you make on admissions officers and start defying impressions. This is an essential guide to cutting through the noise of the admissions process and gaining the confidence to forge one's own path to success--in college and beyond."
