Preparation is key. A New York Times article puts it this way: "What colleges look for sends a powerful message about what matters, not just to admissions officers but in life, and students often respond accordingly."
But parents cannot be expected to find their way through the statistics of acceptance rates and corresponding merit and need-based aid, much less how to advise their high school kids into strengths and interests and goal-setting. Beyond the vast amount of constantly changing information, the teen years are often a time when a bridge of objectivity is valuable. The busyness of life for both parents and students lends itself to increasing stress as the demands of the complex yet life-changing decisions around post high-school planning persist. Ultimately, you want to know where your child will thrive, and to see them enter adulthood with purpose and confidence.
