In the fall of 1999, New York Times education reporter Jacques Steinberg was given an unprecedented opportunity to observe the admissions process at prestigious Wesleyan University. Over the course of nearly a year, Steinberg accompanied admissions officer Ralph Figueroa on a tour to assess and recruit the most promising students in the country.
The Gatekeepers follows a diverse group of prospective students as they compete for places in the nation's most elite colleges. The first book to reveal the college admission process in such behind-the-scenes detail, The Gatekeepers will be required reading for every parent of a high school-age child and for every student facing the arduous and anxious task of applying to college.

Absolutely. I want to process the information.
Enjoyed the reality of following an admissions officier.
Yes, I wish the author would realize that school counselors could actually be vaulable resources to parents. I was offended by some of the generalizations about the profession. However, this book will still be on a reference slide during a college planning presentation.
a well written, VERY interesting book on the the college admission process, but more like a nonfiction novel, than a reference book on the process.
