    The book goes above and beyond surface-level preferences such as geographic location and campus size, asking you to dig deeper and think about what you really want out of a college experience and match you up with a school accordingly. This book is a witty and wise guide to everything you need to know about the college experience. Rather than shying away from subjects and classes that cause them to struggle, students should work with teachers, guidance counselors, and their parents to overcome any obstacles. Also, if your child has attended more than one high school, be aware that official transcripts from all schools are likely to be required.

    It is never too early to start thinking about your child's ability to function in the adult world. Concerned about your budget and future job potential? The title is self-explanatory. Now in its fourth edition, this guide is based on the real-world experiences of students and parents. In fact, a teacher who has seen her struggle yet persevere might ultimately write a more insightful and engaging recommendation.

    Sophomore Year Checklist — Study for and take the PSAT, treating it as a trial run — Attend college-related events at high school or within the local community — Continue to take courses that satisfy college entrance requirements 11th Grade In terms of college preparation, the second half of high school is much more intensive than the first. You should be realistic about your child's potential, and seeking guidance from their school or college as to their likely educational achievements will help to identify appropriate routes out there. How can I be sure my child will not only achieve academically, but also be safe, warm, well feed, have fun, and stay healthy? Antonoff asks readers to complete a series of questionnaires and worksheets in order to help you reflect on your own desires.
