Event description

Description

Are you worried you don't have the facts you need to help your student get in to college?

Do you want to save money on applications by making sure you apply to the right schools?

Join Judy Young and Araceli Jonsson, two admissions experts, in a small-group interactive workshop where we put you in the driver's seat as the admissions officer at a Texas public university. We give you the tools and know-how so you can successfully navigate this complex process with your son or daughter. We will teach you what it takes for your student to get into a dream school the RIGHT WAY!


We will cover such questions as:

-How does automatic admissions work?
-My student is not in the top 10% of his/her class. Can s/he get in?
-Which Texas schools will accept my student?
-How does choice of major impact admissions?
-When should my student start thinking about college?
-How can a student stand out in college admissions?
-Is it better to get an A in the "regular" class or a B in honors?
-How much do test scores matter?
-What extra-curricular activities do universities like?

As experts, we bring calm to confusion by using data to drive decision-making, keeping you up-to-date on admissions trends, and helping you understand what colleges are looking for in prospective students. We will help you think outside-the-box for a more successful college outcome.

As moms, we understand you want the very best for your kids, and that this is a stressful and confusing process. We are not enslaved to rankings and understand that MANY variables go into the decision of where to attend college and are committed to providing information that will help you find the best fit socially, emotionally and even financially.

We have experience walking alongside students and their families as they apply to the largest of public universities, to private liberal arts colleges and even to "elite" schools. These choices about where to apply are always in service of our client's needs.

Yes. One ticket admits one parent and one student. If only one of the two can attend, we welcome either! But space is limited, so we do ask that you RSVP and let us know who will be attending. We also offer essay workshops particularly focused on students.

---What's the refund and transfer policy?

No refunds or transfers.
