Description

Much attention has been paid to helping students get into elite schools. Advice on how to ace those SATs and write a killer college application essay all aim to get students into the most prestigious university possible. It’s time to look beyond brand and focus on finding the school that is right for each individual instead.

In Make College Your Superpower: It’s Not Where You Go, It’s What You Know, Anna Esaki-Smith advocates on behalf of students and offers them a guide to getting the most value out of their education. Using the latest data, personal anecdotes, and inspiration, Esaki-Smith shows students how to make informed decisions about where to apply to college, taking into consideration areas of job growth, personal finances, skill sets, potential salaries, geography, and more. In addition, Esaki-Smith explores the connection between majors and jobs and how, rather than relying on a university’s ranking, selecting the right program can more directly result in employability for graduates.

With the mental health of students declining, the time is right for a book that encourages students to be resourceful, independent, and energized. Stories of those who found different paths to success provide students from a wider range of backgrounds and abilities incentive to feel optimistic about their futures, as well. With helpful insight and practical advice, Make College Your Superpower aims to get readers excited—rather than stressed—about the college admissions process.

Anna Esaki-Smith is a journalist, author, and international education consultant. She conducts research for national education organizations, universities, and edtech companies, and is a contributor to Forbes, covering education. Previously, she was responsible for international student recruitment for non-degree programs at UC Berkeley, and has lived and worked in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Paris, and Tokyo. Esaki-Smith currently lives in Chappaqua, New York.
