About the Webconference
With America’s selective colleges becoming more competitive every year, the college admissions process is only getting tougher, while stress levels soar for applicant families. In response to the increasing odds of admission at elite colleges, the proportion of students applying to seven or more schools has risen to 29% in recent years, causing those schools to become even more selective. Rather than focusing exclusively on building student resumes, innovative counseling practices are increasingly placing the emphasis on fostering personal growth and talent, while providing parent programming that both demystifies and helps set realistic expectations about the admissions process. This webconference will explore successful counseling practices that improve transparency and reduce stress for families finding their way through college admissions.
