Reviews of Nail Your College Essay

For the college match process to work, those of us who guide students must help them learn about colleges, but most importantly, learn about themselves. Jan guides students to use their stories and their authentic voices in order "to like the people they are". Plus, she models that advice. Nail Your College Essay is filled with her stories, written in her experienced and powerful voice. This book is invaluable for students, college counselors, and English teachers. —Valerie Broughton, PhD, Certified Educational Planner

Jan Rooker has demonstrated how a student explores discovering their own inner voice, capturing who they are in their essays. A student should think about their application as the introduction of themselves to a college and reveal those characteristics which show the very real and different sides to them. Jan Rooker, in straightforward language, accomplishes her mission with wonderful examples and a method that works! A must read for students before writing their essays and for counselors, teachers, or anyone mentoring the process! —Judy Zodda, Educational Consultant, Professional Member, IECA

Jan has written the book in such an easy to understand and digestible way for students. Compared to every other “how to” essay book I’ve read, this one is so student friendly. I agree with your approach! Love it! — Randye G. Falk, M. Ed., Education Edge Consulting, Inc., College Planning Services and Academic Advising, Professional Member of IECA & HECA
