Tuesday, May 19th at 7 p.m.
Kristin White, author of It's The Student, Not The College : The Secrets Of Succeeding At Any School -- Without Going Broke Or Crazy, will be our featured speaker.
Today’s college admissions culture has become fraught with more pressure than ever—both for students and for parents. Students are under intense pressure to get into the most elite schools which have miniscule acceptance rates and parents are facing the burden of helping their children afford these schools where application costs alone can be overwhelming. Kristin White helps set the record straight in It’s the Student, Not the College. Elite schools don’tmake successful people—they admit students who already have the skills to make their own success. White explains how students and parents can cut the stress (and the debt!):
• Forget the elite-college mystique: Motivated students can make any school their dream school
• Choose the school that fits you best: What to consider—including your finances
• Develop a personal Success Profile: It’s not all about acing the SATs. Learn which traits and skills will help you thrive in high school, college, and beyond!
