Getting In: A College Coach Conversation

Getting In: A College Coach Conversation

Thursday at 1 PM Pacific

February 14th 2019:Negotiating Scholarships; Senioritis; Starting the College Essay

Last week we talked about appealing your financial aid awards, and this week we’re covering how to negotiate for more scholarship money. If you didn’t even know that was a possibility, you’ll want to tune in to learn more. You may have heard about senioritis but don’t know much about the impact. Can it truly be harmful to your college acceptances? In a word—yes. Finally, for those juniors eager to get a jump on application season, it might be time to start thinking about your essay. We’ll offer suggestions for pre-work and planning that you can do now.
