Getting In: A College Coach Conversation

Thursday at 1 PM Pacific

May 12th 2016:What to Consider if You're Considering a Gap Year. Also, Applying from Abroad, Listener Questions on College Finance

Last week we welcomed an international student studying in the US to our show. This week, we’re going to be discussing the ins and outs of applying if you are an international student interested in attending college in the US. With Malia Obama’s recent announcement that she’ll defer freshman year for a year, gap years are all over the news. We’re going to investigate the options and take a closer look at what you should consider before you decide to take a year off. Finally, we’ll be answering listener questions related to college finance.
