Applying to college is an exercise fraught with angst for most high-school students, but those with learning disabilities have an even more difficult challenge trying to find a school that fits. This excellent book guides kids through the process, hitting all the issues that might come up…There's such good advice in this—including wiping your social networking pages clean—that teens without ADD or other learning disabilities will find this eminently useful too.
This is a much-needed and hugely useful book. I recommend it most highly.
