College Admissions Guide: Your FAQs Answered
Applying to college is, without a doubt, the most overwhelming and stressful time for most students and families. Parents voicing their expectations, friends listing their dream schools, and urban legends flying around about who got in where and how.
Adding to the frenzy, is the media’s obsession with the top 10 or 20 colleges from the US News & World Report’s list. If you only listen to the news, you would not realize there are dozens of other great liberal arts colleges and universities that exist around the country. There are some amazing, perhaps not-as-well-known, liberal art colleges that offer an education on par with some of the top colleges and graduate students that go on to change the world.
As you apply to college, don’t forget to look inwards. If you are tuned into your own values – the things that are important to you, you are likely to end up in the right place.
