Resisting the Frenzy – A Timely Reminder

Applying to College, Building Your College List

As seniors collect acceptance and denial letters, and juniors are gearing up to dive into their college search, Frank Bruni from the New York Times gives us a timely reminder that the college you attend does not define who you are. This is a highly recommended piece for parents in the midst of (or about to begin) the college application process.

The blog is actually an adaptation of an essay out of Bruni’s book, “Where You Go Is Not Who You’ll Be: An Antidote to the College Admissions Mania.”  I consider this a must-read for anyone going through the college admissions process – any voice that encourages reason in the midst of the college admissions frenzy is one that I love to hear!
