The national reply deadline of May 1st is just around the corner, so last week’s episode of Getting In: A College Coach Conversation, focusing on multiple aspects of the decision-making process, was well-timed. Sally Ganga guest hosted, bringing in three unique perspectives to discuss selecting the right college.
Asking the Right Questions
In the first segment Sally was joined by College Coach expert Peter Silberman to discuss the role of college visits in making thoughtful, nuanced decisions. Peter discussed the overload of informational resources available to students today; he suggested using college visits to “cut through” the excess noise and go straight to the source for your answers: current students. Another great suggestion was tuning into visual cues around campus, looking at everything from event flyers to newspaper op-eds.
