Advice College Admissions Officers Give their Own Kids

Who better than a college admissions officer to give you advice when applying to college? Of course, if you are a teenager, and that college admissions officer happens to be your mom or dad, it may be the last person you’ll take advice from!

I wanted to share this wonderful article from the New York Times compiling the wise words of college admissions officers whose children have applied to college. These are tips that parents and students can benefit from, throughout the entire college admissions journey.

And if are a parent whose teen won’t listen to your advice about colleges, give me a call. A common reason that parents opt to work with a college consultant is because their teen doesn’t like listening to mom and dad, but is perfectly open to the same advice from a third party. I hear this from parents all the time!
