Labor Day has come and gone, and that means two things: summer is (sadly) over and it is officially college application season! Beth Heaton returned to host last week’s episode of Getting In: A College Coach Conversation, covering a range of topics. In the first segment, first generation college-bound students were given advice, recommendations, and things to consider as they begin their college career. Many families need help building a college list that is affordable, and the second segment on the show offered tools for researching colleges from a financial perspective. And the show wrapped with an Office Hours discussion focused on the “Why this College?” essay that many colleges ask applicants to write.
It’s hard to believe, but we’ve just wrapped up Memorial Day weekend, and the official start to summer is just about here! Time to relax in your beach chair with the latest episode of Getting In: A College Coach Conversation. In this episode, host Beth Heaton gave listeners a peek inside the admissions office at the University of Southern California and explored the challenges and advantages of applying to college as a first generation college student. In the final segment, Beth helped parents grappling with the question, “Why should I save for college?”
