How to Get In, Get Out, and Get a Job – 100 Questions to Ask About College – by Marguerite J. Dennis, who has been recruiting internationally for over 25 years, first at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. then at Suffolk University in Boston, Massachusetts. (Follow this link to read her bio on the MJDennis Consulting website.)
As the publisher’s website points out, The New College Guide: How to Get In, Get Out, and Get a Job is a different kind of college admission and financial aid book because it offers the reader information to consider before college admission, to financing college with manageable debt, to graduating in four years and getting a job after graduation.
On a personal note I have known Marguerite Dennis since my IIE-Vietnam days (2005-09), when she was Vice President for Enrollment and International Programs at Suffolk University. I was excited when I learned that she was writing this book and, after seeing a draft, was happy to offer the following testimonial:
The New College Guide is a practical and readable book that addresses questions on the minds of millions of anxious students and parents not only in the United States but overseas. It gives readers a golden opportunity to benefit from Marguerite Dennis’ insights and wisdom about U.S. higher education gained from decades of professional experience.
It’s a great resource not only for domestic (U.S.) students but also for international students, of which there were 819,644 last year, according to the 2013 Open Doors annual report, an increase of 7%, including those from a country that ranks 8th among all places of origin, i.e., Vietnam.
