MaggieSez: September Newsletter

And The Season Begins!

2020 is a crazy and difficult year for working parents and students alike.  With all of the change we’re seeing, we know that colleges are modifying their institutional priorities in a way that will impact this admission cycle.

Our response to this, and our advice to our clients, is to make sure you have a balanced college list, and that you truly love each school on your list. We also don’t advise falling in love with one.  Having a balanced list means you’ll have good news and a less-stressed teenager!

College App Roadmap Starts 9/13

If you have a rising high school senior and you’re just getting started with college applications, our College App Roadmap is just for you!  This 8-week series, starting 9/13, will feature 6 group sessions and 2 individual meetings with one of our counselors.  Click this link to sign up and let us help you get through this crazy admission process!

College Admissions Testing
  • Some colleges are making the decision to not require the SAT or ACT for the Class of 2021, and some for future classes as well.
  • Should your student still take the SAT or ACT?  Will they benefit from a test-optional process or not?
  • It depends.  Call us to discuss.
