Getting In: A College Coach Conversation

Thursday at 1 PM Pacific

January 10th 2019:The Admissions Waiting Game; Tax Breaks; Scam Honor Societies

Seniors are now in what can be the toughest part of the process: waiting to get an answer from colleges. Is there anything you can do now that the applications are in? We have some thoughts that we’ll share with you. Paying for higher education can mean tax breaks come April. Part One of a two part series will look at options if you are saving for college and repaying education loans. Finally, you or your student may be receiving invitations to join some honor societies or “nominations” to expensive summer programs. We’re giving tips to determine what is real and what is more of a scam.
