J. D. Rothman, The Neurotic Parent’s Guide to College Admissions
April 3: 7:00PM – 8:00PM
Getting into college has become a business in America. Children are over tested, over programmed, and overly anxious. But their parents are even worse. As the blurb reads on the back of J.D. Rothman book, "Sixteen year-olds with more impressive resumes than Fortune 400 CEOs? Has the nation lost its mind?"
Spend an evening with the author and a panel of college counselors from Fieldston and Nightingale-Bamford and the directors of undergraduate admissions from Columbia and New York University. Are parents too involved in the process? Is there too much pressure on high school kids? Why has the college admissions process changed so radically in the last fifteen years? See what the panel has to say about the process. J.D. Rothman will make sure to bring hilarious insights and lots of laughter to a tender subject for parents.
To attend, you can purchase the featured book or a $10 Strand gift card at the registers, or at the door of the event. All options admit one person. The event will be located in the Strand's 3rd floor Rare Book Room at our store at 828 Broadway at 12th St.
