College Planning
 
 

Presentations 
(1 to 1 ˝ hour session, PowerPoint format)
I have experience in speaking to groups of parents and students about the college-going process. 
Although I can speak on a number of higher ed topics, including paying for college and athletic recruiting, the most popular subject is:

"Making Sense of Current-Day College Admissions .....
    An  Insider's View of How Students are Evaluated and Selected"

    It includes topics like:
    Why is it harder now than when the parents applied to college?
    The high school dilemma - hard courses or good grades?
    How colleges evaluate extra-curricular activities.
    How important is the SAT/ACT?
    Advice on preparation and scheduling.
    How does an admission committee evaluate applicants and decide who to admit?
    What are "tags” and how much of a difference do they make?
    Things to keep in mind when writing the college essay.
