Editors Note Touring colleges during spring break of his junior year of high school, "AP" Harry and his mother step in to visit Yates, a liberal arts school in the Northeast, where he runs into two of his classmates from an elite public school in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., in a hilarious chronicle of a year in the life of the college admissions scramble. Reprint. 15,000 first printing.
Editors Note 1 Acceptance is a satire of America's overachievers, a novel set over one year in the college application process, when students and parents surrender their evenings, their weekends, and their sanity to the race for admission. Maya, Taylor, and "AP" Harry (so named for all the advanced placement courses under his belt) are high school students in a Washington, D.C. suburb called Verona, each gunning for admission to the most prestigious colleges. Olivia is an overworked admissions officer, under siege from applications and every kind of desperate appeal. The application process threatens to overrun all of their lives, and Acceptance follows each character's struggle for their sanity against the relentless pressure of competition.
Editors Note 2 A hilarious, insightful chronicle of one year in the life of the college admissions process seen through the eyes of three ambitious students, their parents, and one beleaguered admissions officer. With the empathy of Tom Perrotta and the engaging candor of Curtis Sittenfeld's Prep, Susan Coll charts the students' progress from month-to-month and reveals every dimension of wild competition among the families gunning for the top spots in the American meritocracy.
