Agent Sandra Dijkstra sold world rights to Marjorie Hansen Shaevitz's Admission Possible: Getting into the College of Your Choice to Peter Lynch at Sourcebooks. Shaevitz founded and directs an admissions counseling business called Admission Possible and has also written a number of books, including The Confident Woman (Harmony). In this book, she walks students through the admissions process, detailing what they should do starting their freshman year of high school through to their senior year.
