applications from fifty students who currently attend Harvard or Alumni These applications highlighted their positive attributes that disparaged any hopeful student For example, these students passion, intelligence, athleticism, artistic attributes, andimportantly leadership Additionally, these prestigious students were raised in homes of different status and origin, but all possessed the same desire to attend the reputable Harvard University.In my opinion, the How To Guide provides insight on qualities applicants have to possess in order to gain acceptance into the university Obviously, obtaining and possessing these characteristics is anything but simple Rather than encouraging, this guide does quite the opposite I recommend this book to someone who believes that they

you do not believe you possess this skill set, do not read the guide, as you will only be discouraged An inspiring read I found the book to be repetitive to the point of boredom sometimes but I

resumes, I would know an awful lot about sports, the arts, the sciences, and their awards to say the least The most important lesson I came out with from this book, and which was repeated so often that it stuck, is that one should not take on activities for the sole purpose of beautifying his resume, but should do so on the grounds of having passion and love for that activity I d probably recommend this book for people who have just entered middle school because knowing the sheer strengths of these applicants resumes will have them know in no time that in order to compete, they must start as soon as possible
