FREE WEBINAR: What Parents of Middle School Students Need to Know — and Do — To Help Their Students Get Into Selective Colleges
Presented by Susan Goodkin, national college consultant

What We’ll Cover:

  • A quick guide to what selective colleges are looking for today
  • The middle school curriculum choices that may impact the strength of your child’s college application
  • What grades  — and honors — in middle school will matter to college admissions officers (hint: not many)
  • Why some middle schoolers should take the SAT/ACT — and why most shouldn’t
  • The behavior you should be modeling now to help your child succeed academically in high school – – and write strong college applications (it’s not what you think)
  • Why it’s critical to encourage your child to explore a wide range of interests in middle school
  • Activities your student doesn’t have to participate in to improve his or her chances of getting into selective colleges — but which many parents (wrongly) believe are critical for admissions!
  • What happens to too many boys in middle school that makes them less likely to attend a selective college
  • What happens to too many girls in middle school that makes them less likely to pursue their true interests

Plus, there will be a Q&A session at the end of the presentation.
