Fat Envelope Frenzy
EUR€10.76New Kobo Germany
A former Ivy League admissions officer, Joie Jager-Hyman follows five bright and eager high schoolers-students from diverse ethnic, social, and financial backgrounds-as they each put their best foot forward on the road they hope will lead them to the hallowed halls of Harvard University. At once a remarkable true story of dedication, achievement, and heartbreak and a guide for success in an ultra-competitive environment, this important work deserves a place in the home of every family that has ever dreamed of receiving that coveted "fat envelope" in the mail. Jager-Hyman also offers a startlingly frank appraisal of the college admission process and the important roles race and class continue to play in a student's efforts to attend the best school possible.
