Lacy Crawfords first novel, Early Decision (William Morrow), out this week, was inspired by the 15 years she spent working as an independent college-admissions counselor to the rich-and-powerfuls sons and daughters in Manhattan, Chicago, Los Angeles and London. For a fee, Crawford would help them with their entry essays and applications to get them the one thing they couldnt always buy a spot in an Ivy League school. She shares her stories (with the names and some characteristics changed) with The Post.
