I have no problem with prestigious colleges. My beef is with the obsession around them. This notion that you will find inherently better educations, experiences, or outcomes simply because a school turns almost all of its applicants away just doesn’t hold up. But plenty of students—including a good portion of our own Collegewise students and counselors—found their perfect match at one of those highly selective colleges. And if you think that’s where your fit might be, too, I hope you’ll join us for a free webinar on Tuesday, May 8, 2018 from 5 p.m. – 6 p.m. PDT. Led by Collegewise counselors Monica Brown, Nandita Gupta, and Kavin Buck, who worked as admissions officers at Harvard, Stanford, and UCLA respectively, they’ll help you separate admissions fact from fiction and share insights about how you can improve your chances of admission. Best of all, they’re straight shooters, great teachers, and liberal administrators of the calm and sanity so desperately needed in the chase for a highly selective college acceptance.
