"These essays encompass the richness of cultures, achievements, experiences, and points of view within a remarkable urban high school, and they demonstrate emphatically that there are many different ways to write a smashingly effective college application essay."
Bob Laird, former director of undergraduate admission at UC Berkeley

"This is a useful, provocative, and entertaining new book. It is radically different in wholesome ways from most of the other ‘How To’ essay books that crowd the bookstore shelves…. And it is a great cultural survey of Berkeley: female Boy Scouts, male dancers, you name it. What a great group of kids."
Jonathan Reider, Director of College Counseling at San Francisco University High School and former Admissions Officer at Stanford University
