Help! I need opinions for my book title!

Help! 

I need some opinions on a book title!  I'm just about done with my next book.  This one is about college application, admission, and scholarships.  It's going to include information about curriculum, testing, finding colleges, elite university admission, check lists for junior and senior year, merit and need based scholarships, letters of recommendation, application essays, competitions, interviews.  Tons of college admission stuff.  Very different from my last book about homeschool records.


We decided we like having the main title called "Courting the Colleges"  because we are including a scripture verse and a quote from the Princess Bride on every chapter.  So what I'm really looking for right now is a subtitle.  I need something long that clearly spells out exactly what is in the book, but hopefully in a fun, catchy way.  For example, this title is HILARIOUS and so it's very catchy:  The Neurotic Parent's Guide to College Admissions: Strategies for Helicoptering, Hot-housing & Micromanaging (I just about died laughing!)  I don't need something THAT funny, though.  I guess I'm not thinking "hilarious" so much as "catchy."

Can you please share ideas for a neat title and subtitle?  Do you like "Courting the Colleges"??

Here are some ideas we are pondering:

Hi Lee,

Courting the Colleges for Homeschoolers as the main title sounds really good. Its different from other titles which some how or other way end up being too synonymous. When will this book be available in Amazon?

I like "Courting the Colleges -- Help Your Homeschooler Woo and Win University Admission and Scholarships." That sums up what following your advice throughout high school is likely to accomplish. Not every young person will be able to attend the college of their dreams or obtain huge scholarships (or even scholarships at all). But every young person should be able to do their best to prepare for college admissions by following your advice throughout their high school years, and thereby be positioned to do the best they can with the admissions process.

I also like the analogy and alliteration in your title--it IS catchy! =)

Thanks for the kind words, Lee. It's a little late, but in case you haven't thought of a title, I'm happy to brainstorm with you.
