WEST ORANGE, NJ - With the mission to prepare high school students and their parents for the daunting college admissions process, 23-year-old Natasha Scott and author of The College Admissions Bible, will host "Inside the College Admissions Process", a workshop offering tips and tricks for tackling the college admissions process on August 28, 2013 from 7:00pm - 8:30pm at the West Orange Public Library (46 Mount Pleasant Avenue, West Orange, NJ). Scott, a magna cum laude graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and Springfield, NJ native will provide her personal reflections into the college admissions process, as well as discuss hot button issues like applying early decision and how to work the financial aid process.

"The college admissions process can be a bewildering journey, but it isn't an impossible feat. I want to break down the process as much as possible and show students and parents precisely what they need to do to apply for college without making them feel overburdened," said Scott, the recent author of The College Admissions Bible, a user-friendly guidebook that finally simplifies the intimidating college admissions process.

A graduate of Kent Place School (Summit, NJ), one of the nation's top college-preparatory schools, Scott drew on the strategies taught to her by Kent Place's college advisors and combined such tips with her own personal research and experience that helped her successfully navigate her way into her first-choice university. Her concise yet comprehensive handbook provides many how-to's from writing a balanced college list to to constructing a winning college essay, and even includes Scott's own two essays she submitted to the University of Pennsylvania.

"Inside the College Admissions Process" will be an interactive workshop for students and parents looking for additional guidance from a young graduate's perspective. Copies of The College Admissions Bible will also be available.
