Dr. Carjie Scott, the Education Equalizer, ™ defied the odds as a first-generation college student who rose to the top.

Dr. Scott advocates for first-generation college students, particularly Black students. She believes these students will enroll, excel, and graduate when celebrated and nurtured. Consequently, they will become gainfully employed when they are a part of an academic environment that celebrates their innovative ingeniousness as well as their diversity. Her vision is to create an inclusive and diverse higher education work environment that reflects the student body, instead of an agency that repels or rebukes them. Education will always be one of the vehicles that accelerates greatness. However, education should never be the entity that contributes to stagnation for anyone. Therefore, Dr. Carjie Scott, the Education Equalizer ™ relentlessly works to ensure that education is not only accessible but equitable.

19 thoughts on ““You are Accepted: How to Get Accepted into College and Life” Autographed Book”

  1. Dr. Scott’s book is a must read for first-generation college students to college administrators/leaders. Dr. Scott candidly shares powerful truths grounded in self-acceptance, resiliency and advocacy. Additionally, she shares the importance of owning your story, honoring/celebrating diversity and failing forward. This book is an invaluable resource for all higher education stakeholders.

  2. I finished reading, You are Accepted, in one day because it was such a good read. I was impressed with how Dr. Scott told her story with such bravery and vulnerability that made her instantly someone you wanted to cheer for but also someone you wanted on your team because she is tenacious, inspiring, and refreshingly honest. I attended an HBCU (TSU) for my bachelor’s, then attended two predominately white institutions for my MPH and MD. It was intriguing to read Dr. Scott’s experiences and see the similarities in what I have encountered. I highly recommend this book to educators at all levels, government officials, parents, students, and anyone wanting to be informed about the opportunities and struggles in higher education. It will also hopefully start more conversations about institutional racism that impacts higher education, society, and individuals. Dr. Scott did a beautiful job discussing difficult but important topics that cannot be addressed if they continue to be ignored.

  3. This book is more than the college acceptance process. It’s about overcoming life’s challenges and pushing yourself to achieve more than you thought was possible. To do what’s right and propel yourself to the next level. The book inspires you to use your voice and champion yourself as well as your community.

  4. A 2021 must-read and guaranteed page-turner! Dr. Scott provides honest and engaging insight on a career in Higher Education Administration from the perspective of an authentic, hard-working woman.

Carjie is an inspiration and her book proves that with dedication and perseverance you can achieve your goals no matter what odds are stacked against you.

  6. “You Are Accepted: How to Get Accepted into College and Life,” by Dr. Carjie Scott is intriguing, informative, and it takes the reader on a necessary journey of introspection regarding self-acceptance, self-discovery, and self-awareness.

    Dr. Scott used her life’s experiences and her educational paths to vividly convey what it like to be Black, highly-educated/highly-qualified, and female in spaces that celebrate our innate greatness or spaces that attempt to crush or contaminate it!

    Her ability to eloquently articulate the pinnacles and pitfalls of educational success will enlighten parents, first generation college hopefuls, and education professionals in private and public sectors.

    Dr. Scott doesn’t just provide a definition of acceptance… her literary work grants each reader the opportunity to be accepted because she understands the importance of not just remembering where we’ve come from… but accepting it and using it as the fuel to cause a combustion of unstoppable greatness!

  7. “You Are Accepted” takes you on a journey of self-exploration & truth. Not only does Dr. Scott provide very poignant examples of her inner struggle while navigating academia, the examples of black love, mutual respect & ambition are inspiring as well. To truly know your value & walk confidently in your light and purpose is a blessing. Carjie, you are a blessing.

  8. This book is a must read for those beginning the academic journey, completing the journey, or in a new season of your career. This book will offer great insight. She was candid and honest about her experiences, and she shared her solutions that can be applied to anyone’s life. I love this book, and I highly recommend it.

  9. The book is simply awesome and a must read! I read it in one sitting as I could not put it down without finishing it.
    This is a book for all, not just students trying to get accepted in college. The author shares her amazing inspirational life story and the book is filled with meaningful insights!

  10. My 5th grader has been reading the book and is actually excited to be reading! Win! Plus he’s learning great tips to get him ahead! Thank you Dr. Scott!

  11. “You Are Accepted” is one of the most amazing books I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading! Dr.Scott’s story is extremely moving and motivates me, as a first generation student pursuing higher education, to keep pushing because ANYTHING is possible when you truly set your mind to it and have pure intentions, no matter the circumstances whether it be location, finances, etcetcetc! I loved the book and recommend it to all students, ESPECIALLY first generation students!

  12. I think it’s a book about more than school admissions but a story of owning your birth right in this world and choosing your experiences wisely

  13. Wow! I just finished your book and the only word I can say now is awesome…Beautifully written. By reading your book, I have been enlightened on the mammoth task of admissions and process. I enjoyed every portioñ as you describe the various ups and downs, however my favorite is when you turned more attention to seek guidance from God. This was powerful. I want my son’s ànd their wife’s to read your book as well.

  14. Dr. Scott’s book, “You are Accepted ” gives an in-depth look into the inequalities of colleges and universities when it comes to enrollment for underprivileged youths who would like to be accepted into various educational institutions. Dr. Scott also provides valuable information on strategic development in not only the traditional approach of going to a college or university, but she feels that incentives should be implemented such as daycares, trade schools, and various other resources to motivate people to apply for higher education. A very awakening and informative read for anyone who is thinking about attending a college and or university.

  15. Hey, Dr. Scott! Hope all is going well. Just wanted to let you know I FINALLY got a hold of the copy of your book I had been waiting to get after ultimately having to cancel the order I originally placed through Books-A-Million when it had been 8 weeks and still “pending” to be sent out, and then found another way through one of my sisters to procure it faster and got it last week! It was definitely worth the wait. I’ve finished reading it, and could hardly put it down. I found it a riveting and illuminating. and loved the way you shared your own story of the challenges and obstacles you had to overcome as well as your successes and achievements that I know will positively inspire, motivate, and help countless others to find their paths to success – and acceptance! I was really glad to finally read it, and, like I said, very much worth the wait! Great job and tremendous book that I believe will have a meaningful impact on a lot of lives.

  16. What a wonderful delight! A quick read and a compelling life story—Dr. Scott’s wide range of higher ed experiences make this book a must-read and should-gift for students, families, and higher ed faculty and staff of all departments and roles. As someone who has also worked at state schools, branch campuses and PWIs, her stories ring true…and amen! Women as brave as Dr. Scott are so necessary for creating change at these institutions, although they are, so unfortunately, rarely thanked for their efforts and feedback. Higher ed must finally begin to cherish the canaries in the coal mine, trying to improve the community and address its shortcomings, or we we will continue to lose talent left and right. A powerful, immensely readable package! Don’t miss it. You’ll feel inspired…accepted.

  17. Sat down to read this book by a dear friend, Dr. Carjie Scott. I read it in one sitting. It’s an easy/short read, but it is packed with a meaningful story and message. Follow Dr. Scott on her journey to beat the odds as a first-generation college study and then step into the realm of higher education where she advocates for ethical practices and celebrating diversity all while tackling her own personal and professional challenges.

  18. “You Are Accepted” is a very easy read and it provides a vivid first hand experience on what endurance and perseverance look like up close and personal. The author also speaks on the behind the scenes applicant process for admission into college, which is extremely helpful in understanding how the admissions department categorize each applicant.

    I really appreciate the detailed life account from the author, her advice, and over all encouragement in this book. After reading her trials and tribulations in her life, I was left feeling empowered to keep the faith and trust that something better is waiting for me too. Great job, Dr. Scott!!!

  19. I love “You Are Accepted”!! It is a candid and informative work. Dr. Scott reveals the struggles and triumphs of being a part of “the first, the only, and the few”. She shares her personal adversities and victories in academia and in the workplace. Her story is inspiring and provoking. She demonstrates the importance of mentorship and networking. Through her lense we see the value and importance of the HBCU college experience. Dr. Scott povides valuable insight into college admissions, as well as the job interview process. Her book is a must read for African American students, high school and college students, educators, mentors, and parents. Before choosing and applying to a college, read this book. If you know someone who will be among the first, few, or only to go to college, into a certain program, or career, have them read this book. Thank Dr. Scott for inspiring me and others press forward.
