Google “College Admissions Advice” and you will come up with 4,950,000 results. Now, if you are the parent of a college-bound high school student, I know you don’t have the time, energy or patience to sift through such an endless compilation of opinions, how-to’s, blogs and news updates on the college admissions process. You probably work full-time or more, are raising a family and have other basic interests in your life such as eating dinner and getting some sleep at night. If you are a high school student, this can all get pretty overwhelming rather quickly. However, when nearly 50% of all college students do not graduate from the schools they enrolled in as freshmen, it is critical that students and their parents work their way through this information to find the right fit.
At Dobler College Consulting, my goal is to help you survive this chaotic process we call college admissions by providing affordable, professional advising. I believe that everyone deserves a chance to go to college if that is what is important to him or her. With this in mind, I have developed a series of programs and workshops to provide the support, counseling, and guidance that students and their families need in order to successfully navigate these often troublesome roads.
In this blog, I will cover topics, resources and strategies related to the college admissions process. I hope you will also contact me if you would like to discuss how I might help your son or daughter with the college admissions process.
I invite you to ask questions and offer comments and feedback.
