Getting In: A College Coach Conversation

Thursday at 1 PM Pacific

October 12th 2017:How to Stand Out; Should I File the FAFSA?; Standardized Tests

One of the most common listener questions we receive is, “How can my son/daughter stand out in the application process?” This week, we’re introducing the Standing Out series to try to get at some answers to this elusive question. The FAFSA became available to families a few weeks ago on October 1. If you’re wondering whether or not to complete it as part of your child’s applications, tune in to this segment for our thoughts. Finally, we’ll discuss standardized tests and college applications in Office Hours, namely what to send, where to send, and when to send.
