What is A Balanced College List?

I made this quick video to share what we mean by a balanced college list, and why we want you to develop one!

We ALWAYS support your reaching for those dream schools!  Just not 10 of them.  Here’s why:

I mentioned WUE in the video – that’s the Western Undergraduate Exchange.  NOT ALL PUBLIC UNIVERSITIES in the 14 Western States participate in WUE!  So University of Oregon and Oregon State DO NOT, but Western Oregon, Oregon Institute of Technology and Southern Oregon do (links are to my writeups as I have visited both!)Here’s the link where you can learn more about WUE.

So just like in life – your college list should be balanced, both from an admissions perspective and your parents’ financial perspective.

Good luck – let’s finalize that list!
