#079 – As we kick off our episode line-up for 2022, we begin by recapping some of the most memorable guests we had during the past year. These are guests that shared very valuable information in matters related to college admissions and college life. The content we revisit today is broad and covers the college essay, the advantages some private colleges offer over state schools, and ways to secure more financial aid than initially offered. Additionally, you will hear about ways to prepare a high school kid for the social challenges that may be experienced in a college setting. One of our guests shares how he used the courses he took in college while in high school as part of the dual enrollment program, to help his application stand out to college admission officers. That was one of the factors that contributed to his acceptance into Stanford University. You will also learn about a myth that is prevalent among students with plans to go to medical school, and ways in which your passion can help you mitigate some of your application shortcomings.
