Where You Go Is Not Who You'll Be: An Antidote to the College Admissions Mania
Where You Go Is Not Who You'll Be: An Antidote to the College Admissions Mania. In a little more than 200 pages, Bruni tells his own story along with others to support his perspective. One’s value doesn’t come from the school one attends. Achievement and success may not correlate with the ratings of a school. So Bruni advises everybody to calm down, reduce the pressure and use the experience at any college to learn, grow and mature. I was delighted by his examples of U.S. Presidents, CEOs and award-winning scientists who did not attend prominent universities. If that’s how we measure success, the top rated universities may not lead one to those positions. Relax. Any reader with trepidation about the college admissions process will love reading this book.
