Seventeen College Goals #CollegeGoals #giveaway #ad

In our home, we have 6 amazing kids – 2 of whom are in high school this year (one who is preparing to go to college). I remember being in high school and getting read to look at colleges and trying to figure out where I wanted to go and who I wanted to be. I needed all the guidance I could get because I wasn’t really too sure! I recently discovered the book entitled, SEVENTEEN: COLLEGE GOALS, a how-to guide for high school teens by the trusted editors of Seventeen magazine to get them ready for the next step in their lives – college! Part-planner, part-journal, Seventeen: College Goals is filled with handy life hacks, tips for the application process, fun quizzes, inspiring quotes from celebrities and world leaders, and more! This book arrived in bookstores and Amazon on April 10, 2018 and was published by Bluestreak Books, an imprint of Weldon Owen.

An Insider’s Guide to Finding and Getting Into A School You’ll Love

By the Editors of Seventeen Magazine

About the Book

The only thing standing between you and that college life is figuring out where you might want to go, completing your applications, writing a killer essay, scoring solid test scores, shining in your activities, getting glowing recommendations, and . . . okay, that’s a lot. But even though being accepted into college can seem big and overwhelming, it doesn’t have to be.

That’s where Seventeen’s College Goals comes in. This stress-free guide—part-planner, part-journal—will help walk you through the step-by-step process of applying to colleges. There are pages filled with practical cheat sheets, handy life hacks, thoughtful tips, fun quizzes, inspiring quotes from your favorite celebs and leaders, and prompts that will push you to self-reflect. (After all, that’s what college essays are all about!) This way, you can freak out less about if you’ll get in, and actually start thinking about which school’s offer you’re going to accept.
