"Fat Envelope Frenzy" - A Must Read



Joie Jager-Hyman, a former Assistant Director of Admissions at Dartmouth and current Doctoral Candidate at Harvard, has released Fat Envelope Frenzyjust in time for the busy Admissions season. Jager-Hyman who also blogs at Crucial Minutia chronicled the lives of five High School students from different backgrounds with the same goal in mind: Admission into The Ivy League.

Jager-Hyman does a great job in telling these kids stories. I picked the book up Friday in anticipation of our Sunday flight to Winnipeg.. I started reading on the plane in Hartford and didn't put it down until it was finished. I thoroughly enjoyed this easy read, and ended up wanting to know more about all these kids..
