The celebrity-studded college admissions scandal was headline news this past spring. Every family with a student applying to college now or in the near future understands what’s at stake in this hyper-stressful atmosphere. it can be as intimidating as mounting a presidential campaign, but once families understand the different components, it is much more manageable.
I can’t count the number of people who’ve said to me: “Is there any connection between your work with students and the scandal?” The short answer is: “No. I teach students how to express themselves clearly and persuasively and how to find ways to present themselves honestly and positively in their applications. Full stop.”
I’ll be discussing strategies and the process itself on. CLICK HERE –> Thursday July 25th at 7pm at the Edgartown Library, on Martha’s Vineyard, where I’ve been holding workshops and talks on college essays and applications for five years.
There will be cookies, coffee, and time for questions and answers. I’ll suggest books and websites to consult and practical tips for parents and students. Bring your curiosity and your questions.
