Getting In: A College Coach Conversation

Thursday at 1 PM Pacific

June 25th 2015:Getting an Early Start: College Admissions and Finance

This week's show is all about getting an early start. For starters, we’re introducing the first segment in a four-week series covering everything you need to be thinking about relating to college admissions for each year of high school. We’ll start where you start—with ninth grade. We’re also going to discuss getting an early start on college finance, including looking for scholarships and whether or not it's a good idea to move assets around to increase financial aid. We'll finish off our series on the new Common App essay prompts for 2015-2016 by exploring prompts three through five.
