Finding Best Fit Colleges
The Princeton Review conducts our annual College Hopes and Worries Survey of college applicants and parents of applicants to report on their expectations and experiences surrounding the college application process. Using data from The Princeton Review’s latest survey of 11,000 high school students and their parents (TPR’s College Hopes & Worries Survey http://www.princetonreview.com/college-hopes-worries.aspx), Rob Franek will cover the following topics:
- Address the most current issues both college bound students and their families are feeling around admissions, standardized testing and financial aid.
- Walk through trends in college applications over the last admission year and highlight the avoidable pitfalls in which so many college bound students and their families fall smack into each year.
- Examine definition of what a “Best Fit” school actually is and how we each can partner with students and their families in researching, finding and earning admission to those best fit colleges.
