The Ultimate Guide to Successful College Applications

By Anna Costaras, Gail Liss
Nearly three million students are expected to enroll as first-time freshmen in degree-granting institutions in the United States this school year. Each of these students will apply to many schools — five, 10, perhaps as many as 20 — and each of those applications has a daunting number of T’s to cross and I’s to dot. With standardized test taking and school visits, essays to write and forms to fill out, there is so much to do. It goes without saying that a student also attends school, keeps up homework, maintains that spot on the team or the lead role in the school play, volunteers at the local soup kitchen and possibly even holds down a part-time job. Applying to college is intimidating and overwhelming for both teenagers and their parents. The challenge is to be well informed, prepared, focused and organized throughout the multistep college search and admission process. The solution is The College Bound Organizer, the ultimate guide to help students effectively navigate this very complicated and stressful process. The book helps students: • Build a personal profile • Plan a individualized testing schedule • Research colleges to identify schools that are a good fit • Develop a balanced list of schools • Complete and submit applications • Apply for financial aid and scholarships • Meet all deadlines • Sort through and manage application results • Make a final decision Author tips and advice, and interviews with admission professionals offer insight into the process, including what admission officers are looking for in an applicant, common mistakes students make on their applications and when applying for financial aid, and other valuable information.

Getting My Bounce Back

By

#1 Amazon New Release ─ Female, fit and fifty

Exercise is not optional: You don’t have to run a marathon to be fit and healthy or suffer through a triathlon that includes a half-mile swim in the ocean. But you do need an exercise habit. Especially as we age, exercise is not optional. Yet unless we had been athletes as kids or young adults, and few of us were, we do not know how to find our edge. Learning how to carve out time to meet our fitness needs or to push ourselves physically and mentally is one of the greatest challenges to aging well.

Finding the inspiration to exercise: Inspired by her highly popular blog “Be the Dog”, Carolee Belkin Walker's Getting My Bounce Back is a relatable story of what it’s like to be a successful professional woman encountering all things fitness for the first time. Even if readers have never put on a pair of running shoes or tried again and again to get a fitness habit, they’ll relate to the highs and lows of Walker’s journey to the back of the pack and ultimately stumbling on a path to resilience and well-being.

Happier more confident woman: You could fit two of Walker inside what her body looked like in February 2014. But it is the powerful sense of confidence and resilience that’s had the greatest impact on Walker and inspires others. This book is about Walker digging in, discovering who she is, and seeing how far she can push herself to be strong, fit, healthy, and most important, resilient. Her writing is full of humorous situations as she decides to be an active participant in life and not take the setbacks, or herself, too seriously.

Benefits of reading Getting My Bounce Back:

  • Learn how to make time for exercise
  • Get inspired to get fit
  • Learn how you can be more confident and happier
