Product description

Review

Excellent... thoroughly engrossing drama. --BusinessWeek

[The Gatekeepers] provides the deep insight that is missing from the myriad how-to books on admissions that try to identify the formula for getting into the best colleges...I really didn't want the book to end. --The New York Times

Compelling...should be required reading for any student or parent who seeks insight into a process hidden 'behind a cordon of security befitting the selection of a pope'. --Newsweek
