Getting Your Kid into a Top College is Serious Business

Uncategorized

With college admissions getting more competitive every year, it can feel like every test, grade, and extracurricular activity can be a determining factor in your child’s future.

Check out these statistics…

  • With more students applying and shrinking acceptance rates, admission rates are at all-time low — in the single digits for top colleges.
  • 70% of today’s college students are graduating with an average of $39,400 in student loan debt... And many of them are taking longer to graduate or struggling to find a job after graduation
  • Nearly 40% of 18-34 year-olds are moving back home to live with parents or other family members (YIKES!!)

The rules of getting into college have changed. If you and your child are not up to date with vital information, there’s a good chance that they will not get into the school or schools that they want. 

Colleges are looking to build a “well-rounded” class. That means they need a singularly focused quarterback, violinist, budding biologist and established entrepreneur. Being a “well-rounded” student with good grades and SAT scores is no longer enough to guarantee admission at top colleges.

I know that many schools have guidance counselors are working with an average of 500 students each. That’s a lot. There’s simply not enough time in the day to accommodate everyone.  Many students are not getting access to this make-or-break information.

With the stakes higher than ever, how can you make sure YOUR child has access to the information they need to succeed?

  • Start early with activities and grades.

  • Devise a testing and visiting plan.

  • Determine an authentic strategy.

  • Execute with persistence.

If you, or your child, go into this process without intensity, you and your child will lose. It’s too important to take this lightly. Get the help you need.
