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

Mar 31, 2017

Curious how to make the most of your upcoming summer? There's a lot you can do (and they don't all cost money.) This episode, we cover:

  • Great questions to ask when it comes to planning a summer
  • The 2014 National Pre-College Summer Survey, which Jill and her co-author put together based on asking 50 colleges: What summer opportunities matter most on a college application?
  • She addresses whether or not expensive summer programs are “worth it”?
  • What students and parents should do but often don’t do when it comes to planning their summer
  • This really cool Teen Program Evaluator that you can check out that’s basically a scorecard that students and parents can use to determine whether or not a summer program is a good fit

I even ask Jill what I’m really dying to know: Which program is definitely going to get my daughter into Harvard? And she definitely gave me an answer.
