 The college admission process has grown increasingly complex, and students who have a non-traditional schooling experience have to take some extra steps when completing applications. Understanding the admissions process and what can be done each year your student is of high-school age will go a long way towards reducing stress. Tips and discussion topics will include:
Curriculum, evaluations (with or without grades) and transcripts, Standardized testing (when to take what and how to prep), Extracurricular involvement – depth or breadth?, Using each summer well, When to start looking at schools; when to start writing essays, Planning college visit trips, Work experience or community service, Career and major exploration, Recommendation letters and essays, Understanding what schools are a reach vs. a match and why it matters for merit aid, Merit aid realities at selective and highly selective schools, Will your student qualify for need-based aid? What’s your EFC?, What should the parents’ role be in the application process?
