Getting In: A College Coach Conversation

Getting In: A College Coach Conversation

Thursday at 1 PM Pacific

September 14th 2017:Admissions Myths; Office Hours; Inside BU's Financial Aid Office

There are few phrases more common in college admissions than, “I heard that…”Most of what follows will be half-truths, innuendo, or information that is flat out wrong.

We’ll also go inside BU’s financial aid office with a current College Coach finance expert who used to work there, and discuss which supporting documents will be required as part of the college admissions process and who is responsible for submitting them in Office Hours.
