Written in a lively and accessible manner by a former Dean of Undergraduate Admissions at Stanford University, this book will enlighten prospective college applicants and their parents, teachers, and guidance counselors about many of the practical, fundamental, philosophical, and ethical issues involved in the selection of any college freshman class.
"Written as an act of personal catharsis, Fetter's reflections on her seven years as Stanford's dean of undergraduate admissions is as engrossing as it is informative. . . . The book warrants an audience far wider than admissions professionals and higher education specialists. It has much to say to anyone concerned with equity and excellence in our universities."
