The College Essay Guy Podcast: A Practical Guide to College Admissions

Mar 28, 2017

I chat with Dr. Aliza Gilbert about how to support undocumented students. We chat about:

  • What terms to use (and not use) when working with undocumented students
  • What the Dream Act is and why not all students love the term “Dreamers”
  • What percent of kids born right now are born to undocumented parents
  • Whether or not students should reveal their undocumented status in their personal statement
  • How incorrect assumptions can sometimes make a student feel horrible
  • How to know if a school (or a state, for that matter) is/isn’t supportive of undocumented students
  • What teachers/mentors/counselors can do to help undocumented youth
