Problem: The college admissions process is confusing. Everywhere you turn, another parent is telling you about a certain school, test or class your daughter should take. Your daughter has no desire to discuss this – she’s stressed-out too – but you know if don’t implement something soon, the ball will be dropped and ultimately your daughter miss out on an opportunity.
Solution: Outline a plan. You need a clear timetable to tell you exactly what to do and when to do it. What schools to consider? When to visit them? When should you engage the admissions office or a professor?
In other words, get expert advice. When you have questions about your taxes, you hire an accountant. When your daughter needs standardized test help, you call a tutor. Admissions experts simplify the process and strategize ways to make your daughter shine in the application process.
