Director of College Counseling
At the beginning of the summer, the New York Times Choice Blog recommended some books about applying to college. It is a little late for summer reading now, but there are some worthy recommendations in the article.
Much of the literature relating to college admissions might make you more anxious and could perpetuate myths and misconceptions. These recommendations, however, generally give good, sensible advice and provide some insight into the larger landscape of college admissions. And, a couple of them will make you laugh (or cry).
In fact, the blog that includes this article is also a good read and one in which Suzanne and I highly recommend. The Choice: DeMystifying College Admissions and Aid is an occasional piece in the NYT. "Making a college list, filing applications, and marshaling the resources to afford an education can be intimidating. But it need not be." The articles, written by professionals, parents and education writers examine all facets of the college admissions process and can provide some important perspective. Bookmark it and check it out once in awhile!
