: Application Anxiety – Applying to colleges can feel stressful. What standardized test should I take? How and when do I send my scores? How do I send a transcript? What about recommendations? How many schools should I apply to? What should I write my essay about? Do I need to interview at my schools? Should I use the Common App, the Coalition App, or a school application? Should I apply Early Action, Early Decision, or Regular Decision? The application process can feel overwhelming. We will help make sense of choices available to students.
: They’ve picked me. Now I have to pick one of them. How do I pick which college to attend? – During this session, we will discuss all of the things to consider when making your final selection. We will discuss financial aid, scholarships, and overall cost of college. Other considerations might be majors, activities, distance from home, Greek life, and Job/Grad School placement. Helping a student pick the best fit requires looking at a variety of factors.
Making the transition to college. “Toto, we’re not in high school anymore…” For many students, college is the first time they will live independently. In this session we will discuss navigating new friendships, the realities of college parties, how to manage time, taking care of one’s physical and mental health, and learning how to manage personal finances.
