Your admissions decision often comes down to a single sentence or “Soundbite” written by the admissions officer. In SOUNDBITE: The Admissions Secret that Gets You Into College and Beyond, Sara Harberson transforms the admissions process into an empowering journey of self-discovery, putting your fate back into your own hands.
“The college admissions process can be complicated and stressful. It’s why every student needs a ‘Sara Harberson’ as their college counselor and Soundbite allows them to have it.”
—GRETCHEN CARLSON, acclaimed journalist, cofounder of LiftOurVoices.org, and female empowerment advocate
“An immensely readable and practical guide to discovering the secret power high school students can use to differentiate themselves from everyone else.”
