Crabby Gets Published

Crabby congratulates himself…

Crabby is pleased to announce that the Fundamentals of College Admission Counseling, 3rd Edition, has been released through the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC). It contains his chapter on approaching the college essay. Geared toward graduate students and practicing counselors, the book contains many helpful essays  on the many aspects of college counseling in high school. It can be purchased in hard copy form or as a Kindle download. Crabby highly recommends it for those individuals who may have been the last person in the room when the school head asked, “Who wants to be our college counselor?”

Aside from this book, NACAC has many other helpful pamphlets, brochures, and instructional books that can help experienced as well as novice college counselors learn the ropes and communicate with students and their families. Most can be had inexpensively, especially if you purchase in bulk to hand out at parent nights. Spanish versions of some documents are also available.

Oct. 24 note: Crabby has just learned that due to some misprints, the 3rd edition may not be immediately available. Be on the lookout for the corrected version sometime in the near future.

About Will Dix

I am currently writing a book about college admission. I'm interested in the intersection of the college process and American culture. I attended Amherst College in the 1970s, taught high school English and theater at The Hill School in the '80s, returned to Amherst in the '90s as an admission dean, and began the '00s as a college counselor at the University of Chicago Laboratory School. I then joined Chicago Scholars as Program Director. Currently, I blog about college admission for I also help community organizations serving low income students understand the college admission process so more students can consider gaining access to higher education. I have a few private college counseling clients that I take by referral only. The views expressed in this blog are mine alone.
