Understanding the College Application Process

This seminar will help families uncover the mystery of the college admission process and separate fact from fiction. We'll discuss how grades, test scores, activities, and other factors play a role in how colleges make admission decisions. Participants will understand how to be the best applicant possible and discover scholarship and financial aid opportunities. Learn what your HIGH SCHOOL JUNIOR should be doing now to prepare. Walk-ins welcome!

Once you begin making a list of desirable schools, you should also ask about special events, visiting periods, presentations and deadlines involving those schools. If you’re looking for more general information, I’ve provided an extensive list of recommended links and downloads on my Planning Resources page.


"Whether it's pointing a student toward schools they might not know about, providing organizational guidance and support, or reviewing applications, my real passion is to help each student find a place where they're truly going to thrive."
