Getting In: A College Coach Conversation

Getting In: A College Coach Conversation

Thursday at 1 PM Pacific

March 10th 2016:Why I Chose the University of Southern California: One Student's Story

We’re excited to welcome another student to the show to tell her college selection story. In this case, she had to make a difficult decision between USC and Carnegie Mellon, and she’s going to tell us how she did this. A recent article outlined some suggestions for how to raise a creative child, and they didn’t involve overscheduling or—gasp—over-parenting. We’re going to discuss our thoughts on the article, encouraging creativity in students, and how that creativity can play a role in the college admissions process. We’re also going to answer listener questions about college finance.
