I attended Wesleyan University as a graduate student in 1991-1992. Scores of students there struck me as being anti-intellectual, crass, very materialistic, smug hypocrites. Like the vast majority of other Western post-secondary institutions for higher learning, Wes had a Neo-Marxist speech code that allowed (and still does allow) Asians, Blacks, the BGLAD crowd, Latinos, and other (allegedly) powerless peoples to physically and verbally attack Whites (especially heterosexual White males of Northwestern European Descent) at will. European-Americans who dared talk back were either expelled or threatened with expulsion. The ethos at school was so stifling and comical that a gay acquaintance of mine at Wes penned a screenplay entitled "P.C.U." that starred David Spade of Saturday Night Live and other stars of the big screen.
This is a really interesting, enlightening and informative book. I knew that the admissions process had changed since the time that I applied to college (30 years ago), but this really gives you the history and evolution of the process as it is now, though I'm sure it has evolved even more since this was published. It was recommended to me by another parent after we were disappointed that our daughter did not get into both her parents' alma mater, despite her being a stellar student. I highly recommend it anyone who will eventually have kids that will face the college application process.
