A Reading Report

In an effort to educate myself on the full spectrum of college consulting, I've started a reading list.  I recently finished my first book off the list: The Gatekeepers: Inside the Admissions Process of a Premier College by Jacques Steinberg, creator of The Choice blog.  Having decided recently to shift my career focus from admissions test prep to college counseling, I found this work by Steinberg to be an emotional and informative experience. He captures the humanity behind college admissions so effectively and, with a 2012 afterward, updates some of the aspects of his reporting that might be dated. I'm happy that The Gatekeepers was my first "official" reading on the college admissions process--it made me even more enthusiastic about my career change!

My upcoming books to read include the following:

Hopefully the only thing I can fault each of these books with is the inability to write a succinct title without support of a subtitle!  Looking forward to lots of good reading in the future.
