Just Say “Yes.”

We’re always telling our Collegewise kids that where they go to college isn’t nearly as important as what they do while they are there.  That’s an even more important concept to remember at this time of year for kids who might be dealing with some admissions rejections.  Four minutes is hardly enough time to explore this idea, but NBC’s Today Show recently had on Lloyd Thacker from the Education Conservancy.  Lloyd advises that kids say "no" to colleges that rejected them, and start saying "yes" to a future at a college who did.  It’s good advice, and as we’re big fans of Lloyd and the work his organization is doing, I just wanted to share the clip.
