From an Ivy League dean and a college admissions expert, a guide to help parents support their children as they navigate their way to college.

The College Conversation is a comprehensive resource for mapping the path through the college application process that provides practical advice and reassurance to keep both anxious parents and confused children sane and grounded. Rather than adding to the existing canon of “How to Get In” college guides or rankings, Eric Furda and Jacques Steinberg provide a step-by-step approach to having the tough conversations on this topic with less stress and more success.

The book is organized around key discussions and themes that trace the chronological arc of admissions and financial aid–beginning before the assembly of a list of potential colleges and continuing through the receipt of decisions–with a final section that includes advice on the first year of college. The topics include preliminary conversations about the search, and specifically how parents can think about their children’s interests.
