Only short college admissions book I found

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

As a parent, I'd recommend it to other parents, it would be nice to have seen the author go into detail on more professions, but makes that clear iin the beginning

What other book might you compare The Last Admissions Hurdle to and why?

Not as much compare to because it's so short, but might complement Where You Go is Not Who You'll Be by Frank Bruni, Confessions of a Scholarship Winner by Kristina Ellis or The Gatekeepers by Jacques Steinberg.

Which scene was your favorite?

It's not really a scene as much as the whole step-by-step setup to putting a "graduation story" together before a big interview, keeping the end in mind etc

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The Suzanne Collins quote "Because, sometimes, things happen to people and they're not equipped to deal with them" came to mind when I heard about the student who only had one chance at the interview they wanted. That's tough spot an early twenty something or teenager.

Any additional comments?

got my three bucks worth
