There are 2500+ 4-year colleges in the US, and 150 within an hour of NYC. Go see for yourself!
There are many great possibilities, and many good matches for you!
finding the "right fit"
Three Dimensions of Fit
1.) The Emotional/Personal Fit
as determined by the student
2.) The Academic/Admissions Fit
as determined by the college
3.) The Financial Fit
as determined by the family
"Fit is a marriage of research and emotion."
-John Gaines, Vanderbilt
A Student Should:
take responsibility for the process
be self-reflective and self-aware
keep an open mind & test assumptions
ask questions and seek advice
communicate well
A Student Should Not:
let others run the entire process
procrastinate (too much!)
try to do everything alone
turn the process into a competition with others
let anxiety or stress pile up without help
A Parent Should Be:
a mentor
a source of support
an honest source of information
prepared to let the student make some important decisions
A Parent Should Not Be:
a crutch
an added source of pressure
a gossip
the applicant
A Good College Counselor Is:
an advocate
a source of information and advice
responsive to students and parents
a voice of reason
A Good College Counselor Is Not:
the parent
the applicant
the "bad cop"
a salesperson
And the little pig with the good math and verbal scores lived happily ever after. The other two were swallowed by the wolf...
Find a good match...
and create a positive experience
Maintain Perspective!
