Parental Role in College Choice

Parental Role in College Choice

For parents who have been actively involved in their children’s education, getting them into the right college can seem like the finish line – the thing you’ve been working towards for thirteen years, and the reason you’ve been so picky about schools and grades. And parents, with their wisdom (and experience in dealing with paperwork and bureaucracy!) can be a great resource in college choice, and the admission process. But what happens if the college you want for your child isn’t where they want to go? How big should your role be, and at what point do you have to step back and let your student make his or her own call? Join us this Wednesday when we take a look at the role parents play in college choice, with the authors of Tackling College Admissions: Strategy + Sanity = Success.
