About the Book

“[You’re Accepted] is wonderfully written, in a style that will appeal to everyone involved in the process—student, parent, guidance counselor.”

—Elizabeth Lesser, cofounder of the Omega Institute and
New York Times bestselling author of Broken Open: How Difficult Times Can Help Us Grow

Students may worry about SATs and grades, but university admissions coach Katie Malachuk knows that it takes much more than numbers to chart the right path to college. To help applicants (and their families) make enlightened decisions, she transforms the application process into one of self-discovery, rather than self-delusion. Katie’s approach strips away the destructive, competitive energy and replaces it with revelations about how to uncover your innate talents and true self.

With great humor and insight, You’re Accepted makes a convincing case that presenting the real, authentic you (not some smooth, packaged version) actually increases your chances of getting into college. The former admissions director shares insider tips on everything from writing essays to seeing things from the admissions committee’s point of view. You’re Accepted brings higher fulfillment to higher education by helping you get into the college that’s right for you—the one that will help you become the person you’re meant to be.
