MaggieSez – Dads & Grads June 2023 Newsletter

Congrats to the Class of 2023!

This year, our seniors received over one thousand offers of admission from 258 different colleges.
And they were offered OVER $24 million dollars in MERIT scholarships.

June is for Dads and Grads!

And it means you’re now a RISING senior, or a rising junior, or whatever year is NEXT for you!  Which means – it’s time to start thinking about how you’ll use this year to stand out when you apply to college.  Maybe it’s ramping up the academic rigor; maybe it’s narrowing down your extra-curricular activities and taking on a leadership role (notice we said narrowing DOWN your extra-curriculars, not spreading yourself thinner by ADDING another….).

If you have a rising senior, with college apps coming up this fall, here’s our article on how to be a STAR applicant!  If you’d like some personalized help with your college search and application process, please feel free to get in touch – our team still has availability to work with Class of ’24 students one-on-one.  Our team gets great results – and we help you #StressLess!!  We are also booking clients in the Class of 2025 and 2026.

Host A Virtual “College Info” Seminar For Friends

Are your friends starting to think about (read: get anxious about!) college?  You can host a private virtual college admissions information seminar for your friends or fellow “pandemic pod” parents!  We can tailor our presentation for parents of 8th, 9th, 10th or 11th grade students.

We do not charge for presentations.

College admission looks very different today than it did when we applied 20-something years ago.  Admission rates are a fraction of what they were when we applied – and the process is much more unpredictable.  You can work with your child through the process, but it’s ok to ask for help from experts.
