Dr. Michele Hernandez, the author of several well-known books on college admissions and former Assistant Admissions Director at Dartmouth University, shares her 10 best secrets for top college admissions. For example:

The perspective may be that attending a private school or boarding school from K-12 offers a leg up in college admissions, but this is simply not the case. Attending a public high school can actually be better in the long run than going to a “fancy” private school in determining your college admissions odds. Colleges today are trying to diversify when it comes to their admitted classes. Dartmouth College, for instance, typically accepts 69 to 70 percent of its incoming freshman from public high schools, which gives students the chance to be at the top of their class in a larger pool as compared to a smaller private high school. In short, pick a college because of the FIT, not based on any perceived admissions advantage.
