#041 – Today, we present the steps to take after the college applications have been sent in.
Jankel and I talk about what you should do around your winter break to ensure that your application packet is complete for each of the universities and colleges to which you applied.
Although turning in your college applications is a huge and monumental milestone, it is not the last step in your college admission process.
There are also very easy and important steps you are expected to take for those schools that grant you admission.
Those steps are important because failing to act on them may result on those colleges rescinding your admission, and that is something no student wants to happen.
We also talk about what to do if one of your top schools places you on a waitlist. Our discussion uncovers whether that is a good or bad thing, and the steps you can take to tilt the scale in your favor.
We value and appreciate everything you are doing as a student to prepare have the best possible outcome in your college path.
We also treasure what parents of our audience do by listening to each episode to be better prepared to help their kids through this process.
You all are the reason why we create every episode and we welcome and embrace each of you as part of this beautiful College Metropolis community.
