Eh. This really wasn't aimed at me since I'm long past college admissions and didn't need most of the advice in the first place, but I picked it up because it looked funny. It was funny, but it was also occasionaly ableist, sexist, and especially transphobic in its humor, which put me off considerably.

The humor in this book was lost on me. I saw the author was trying to be funny, but after a few pages, it just became too annoying. I did not see any new information in this book that was not already in all the other books on the topic of college admissions.

This book covers everything from deciding where to apply to how to decide if a gap year is right for you and everything in between. With irreverent quizzes and checklists, the author has taken a sometimes stressful topic and made it humorous. Her experience as an admissions counselor and alumni interviewer provides valuable insights which make this guide a must-read for anyone considering college.

A very helpful book. There was some language and content I would have preferred not to see, but all in all, the book was funny and useful.

Way too many jokes and not enough information. Strange mix of excessive humor and advice. Cannot recommend.
