From the Reviews:
Praise for the previous Edition of Essays That Will Get You Into College:
“Kaufman and his associates create an excellent resource for college-bound students. … Many college-bound students will want to pick up this book because of the information provided in chapter four. Twenty-five admissions essays were graded, ranked, and commented on by a panel of judges. … Students who hope to attend college should definitely consider this resource. The book is extremely well organized and offers valuable advice on how to succeed in the admissions process.”
VOYA, June 2004
"This book should help any student write a better essay and may motivate some to create super efforts. It does tend to make the problem of writing an essay to be far simpler than one might have imagined. But, the quality of its advice should reassure book store operators to keep this good one on sale."
