Getting In: A College Coach Conversation

Getting In: A College Coach Conversation

Thursday at 1 PM Pacific

March 02nd 2017:A Day in the Life of an Admissions Officer; How to Financially Plan for all Four Years

Ever wonder what life is like as an admissions officer? Understanding what they’re doing on a daily basis can be especially valuable in understanding who will be reading your application.

In our other segment, we’ll talk about the importance of crafting a plan for paying for all four years of college and offer suggestions about how to best do that.
