Ready For College – How Admissions Offices Can Help You

Today’s guest, Deb, has worked in university admissions for 30 years. Recently retired, she talks about the services, events, and programs that admissions offices and counselors can provide. She also talks about why parents would be smart to take advantage of them.

Discover questions you should ask about both academic and non-academic issues. Families should measure colleges from many angles. There’s a lot to think about as families size up a college as a good fit for their child. According to Deb, admissions counselors can make your job easier by showing you how to do that.

Admissions offices are your resources. Not only can they keep you on track with dates and deadlines, but they can explain the ins and outs of their individual college’s admissions policies. Should you apply early? Is there an advantage? Do you know what “rolling admission” means?

We have only scratched the surface on this topic. Stay tuned for more on Admissions in the next few weeks.
