Michele A. Hernandez: A is for Admission: The Insider's Guide to Getting into the Ivy League and Other Top Colleges
For generations, the admissions process of the Ivy League schools and other top colleges has been cloaked in mystery and myth. Now Michele A. Hernandez, a former admissions officer at Dartmouth, finally breaks the ancient code of silence to reveal how the world's most highly selective schools really make their decisions. With absolute candor, Hernandez tells you all the hard truths, provides all the secrets, reveals how admission officers factor in every extenuating circumstance, and, most importantly, she shows you how to make this complex, high-stakes system work for you. Thorough, direct, and written for real results, A IS FOR ADMISSION answers the questions asked by countless students: * What do admissions officers really look for and what turns them off? * How are test scores and grades truly evaluated? * Does applying for early decision hurt or help you get in to the college of your choice? * How can you improve the chances of acceptance?
Architecture depends -- on what? On people, time, politics, ethics, mess: the real world. Architecture, Jeremy Till argues with conviction in this engaging, sometimes pugnacious book, cannot help itself; it is dependent for its very existence on things outside itself. Despite the claims of autonomy, purity, and control that architects like to make about their practice, architecture is buffeted by uncertainty and contingency. Circumstances invariably intervene to upset the architect's best-laid plans -- at every stage in the process, from design through construction to occupancy. Architects, however, tend to deny this, fearing contingency and preferring to pursue perfection. A is for Admission: The Insider's Guide to Getting into the Ivy League and Other Top Colleges free epub With Architecture Depends, architect and critic Jeremy Till offers a proposal for rescuing architects from themselves: a way to bridge the gap between what architecture actually is and what architects want it to be. Mixing anecdote, design, social theory, and personal experience, Till's writing is always accessible, moving freely between high and low registers, much like his suggestions for architecture itself.
