WRITER NEEDED to Create a College Admissions Guide For Foreign Students. Will Pay$$$

We are contracting out a project to create an instructional book that shares best practices for applying and getting accepted into top American colleges; this book, however, must be specifically geared toward foreign students who seek to get accepted to top American colleges.

The book must be a reader-friendly work that specifically addresses the needs, concerns and point of views of foreign students. These students may want to get a better sense of what they must do to put together the most attractive application possible, both academically and culturally, since they are not American. They also, as a norm, have specific requirements and must clear additional hurdles in order to get into top American schools. These requirements and/or hurdles may include taking the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language), researching schools that have the most diverse and foreign student friendly environment, etc.

Ideally, this book will deconstruct the specific best practices and tactics that foreign students from around the world should take advantage of to optimize their chances of getting into top U.S. schools, such as those in the Ivy League, and to study in America during their academic career.
