Getting In: A College Coach Conversation

Thursday at 1 PM Pacific

February 04th 2016:Parents: Please Don't Be More Memorable than your Students!

Standing out in the college admissions process is a great thing. Unless you're the parent, and not the student.

In our second segment, we'll discuss financial aid for transfer students, and then wrap up the show with advice about what to do--and not to do--while students wait for their final round of decisions.
