Why listen to Gunnar?

Gunnar Fox will show you how professors think, what makes them tick, and what they really expect from you.

Gunnar was a hot shot in college. But as Gunnar says, “Show me a college hot shot and I’ll show you a great mentor in that student’s life.” Gunnar had many mentors and he had a bag of tricks and hacks the minute he walked into the door at college.

Four years later he was holding an acceptance letter to Stanford Law School.

“But college success is not just about hard work,” Gunnar says. “And few “A” students are geniuses with special mental powers. You have to trust me… They just have the best information.”

The birth of Kick Ass in College

In college Gunnar was obsessed with modeling his mentors and other great students. He created the first step-by-step manual for his own success freshman year. That simple formula was the first draft of Kick Ass in College.

Years later, the Dean of Students Office of the University of Texas at Austin offered Gunnar the chance to manage a team of 40 education professionals and instructors for an experimental program based on Gunnar’s learning optimization theories. The goal was to keep so-called “at-risk” students from failing out of college.

Gunnar jumped at the chance to prove his formula could work for anybody. And even Gunnar was amazed at the results.

The drop-out rate among this highly disadvantaged population decreased by a whopping 65 percent – which meant that these students were now graduating at the same rate as the general student population.

Let’s be honest, these troubled and de-motivated students had been written off as failures waiting to happen. But the vast majority graduated from college and launched great careers by using just a few of the strategies Gunnar teaches today.

Just imagine what Gunnar’s strategies can do for “average” students!

Gunnar has packed all of the tips from his vault of experience into Kick Ass in College, which has now been updated and expanded with cutting-edge bonus material.
