The Years That Matter Most: How College Makes or Breaks Us

The Years That Matter Most--How College Makes or Breaks Us by Paul Tough pulls back the curtain on the college admissions process. Enrollment management, yield, financial aid “optimization” and athletic scholarships are only some of the areas covered. He includes lots of intriguing general info, in-depth studies (like Trinity College), the role of community colleges and finally the pivotal relationship between higher education and social mobility. This is a fascinating look at a critical element of our society that asks some important questions about how well it is working for everyone. (Non-Fiction)
