In the fall of 1999, "New York Times" education reporter Jacques Steinberg was given an unprecedented opportunity to observe the admissions process at prestigious Wesleyan University. Over the course of nearly a year, Steinberg accompanied admissions officer Ralph Figueroa on a tour to assess and recruit the most promising students in the country. "The Gatekeepers" follows a diverse group of prospective students as they compete for places in the nation's most elite colleges. The first book to reveal the college admission process in such behind-the-scenes detail, "The Gatekeepers" will be required reading for every parent of a high school-age child and for every student facing the arduous and anxious task of applying to college.
