"Matching Students to Opportunity" expands on the discussion of a critical issue in college access and success: the match between prospective students and the colleges in which they enroll. The contributors to this volume argue that the discussion of college match must be broadened to include students at all levels of achievement not just the most academically qualified and must take into consideration dimensions other than academic selectivity, such as geography and price. "Matching Students to Opportunity" advances the current conversation on college access, match, and completion, and offers a valuable addition to public policy discussions on this timely and urgent topic. "Matching Students to Opportunity" widens the college match and fit conversation to be more inclusive and impactful. This volume challenges us to take a more global and comprehensive view of college match a view that is critical if we want to make serious progress in improving educational attainment and increasing opportunity for all of our nation s students. Nicole Hurd, founder and CEO, College Advising Corps This book is a powerful exploration of inadequate matching between students and colleges. It provides important insights to all parties in the college admissions process students, counselors, college administrators, and policy makers. Christopher Avery, Roy E. Larsen Professor of Public Policy and Management, Harvard Kennedy School Andrew P.

All the Advice You Need to Get In To the College You Want! Getting in to your dream college has never been more competitive. Swamped with applications, admissions officers spend 10-20 minutes on each, looking for reasons to say no. It's crucial that students make it easy for colleges to say yes. In his new book, Brand U, renowned college admissions adviser David Montesano shows you exactly how to position yourself as the kind of applicant colleges are eager to admit. David's proven, easy-to-follow Montesano Method takes the fear and uncertainty out of the admissions process, maximizes your chances of success, and is a guide that addresses the goals and concerns of both students and parents, because going through college applications is a family experience. The Montesano Method has 4 phases: SPARK: Here we identify the most critical element for your college application, your spark. This is what sets you apart from the crowd. FIRE: With your spark, now we build your fire, finding and developing your abilities and experiences that make you exceptional. This process isn't just about college, but life. VISION: What kind of undergraduate experience is right for you? We avoid superficial criteria like magazine rankings and instead guide you to the best undergrad fit for you. BRAND: Here, by positioning how you're different and what you bring to each college, we turn the admissions game around so that you're in control and colleges are pursuing you. The college game is too rough to go it alone. With Brand U, you'll have everything you need to find-and get into-the college of your dreams. Brand U Reviews "David Montesano has written a masterful book on how high school students can brand themselves in a way that will lead to winning more college acceptances. With top schools becoming more exclusive, getting the inside scoop on what excites college admission officers is invaluable. I highly recommend that parents and teenagers read this book." Lynn O'Shaughnessy, Education and Finance Writer, CBS Moneywatch "Montesano expertly translates tried and tested strategies and marketing techniques into a "how to" get-into-the-college-of- your-choice guide. His techniques work. I know, because my son got into 14 of the 15 schools he applied to, including his "reach" schools. Do not apply without reading this first!" John McLaughlin, Former CEO and Group President, Monster.com About the Author: David Montesano is founder of College Match (collegematchus.com) - a leading global educational consultancy; more than 96% of Montesano Method students have gained admission to their "reach" colleges and graduate schools, winning merit scholarships averaging $57,000 - the largest amount for students whose awards are being measured. Brand U is David's second book; his first was 10 Strategic College Admission Steps (College Bound News). Termed a "new breed" of college admission consultant by The Washington Post/Newsweek, David contributes to articles in The New York Times, U.S. News & World Report's "Best Colleges," the CBS Moneywatch Blog, Seattle Magazine and Newsweek/Daily Beast.

Reviews"Worth a look, if you'¬?re headed for college or getting ready to apply."-San Diego Union Tribune I received a used copy of your book, Cool Colleges (2nd Edition) in the mail this morning and (admittedly) out of vague interest and the slight boredom that comes with not having a driver's license, I picked it up and went about my usual hole-up-in-my-bedroom-with-new-book-and-blinds-down-and-stay-holed-until-I-have-finished-the-text-in-it's-entirety routine. The purpose of this message is to express my nearly inexpressible gratitude to you and your associates in research. I have read life-changing books, articles, and speeches but I have never, not once, been so deeply affected by a work of this type: A guidebook? I have perused U.S. News & World Report's 2007 College Guide and the Newsweek/Kaplan 2007 College Guide, each with their individual talents and faults, but your book was different. For once I felt like the book was directed to students such as myself. I'm not an athlete and I'm no an academic superstar: at my school, that's what it takes to be a favorite. I am just another mediocre teenager in millions who wants to save the world. Your book made me feel, for once, as though someone was looking at those of us hanging by our fingernails on the edge of being completely lost in our distinction. I love to learn for the sake of learning and not because I'm aiming for any star-studded diplomas or accreditations, but because there is so much to learn. Your book not only allowed me to see that there were other "Lost Kids" (that's what my guidance counselor called me) but further that there were places trying to find us because we aren't as lost as some of our superiors like to think. Again Sir, thank you for all your work. It has not gone unnoticed nor was it in vain. If nothing else, you made at least one girl's life (and future) a little brighter. -Carina, 17St. Petersburg, FL From the Trade Paperback edition.
