We’ve covered what colleges are looking for in Why This College essays in a podcast a few weeks ago. But given how many of the Ivies have different versions of this essay, we are dedicating another segment to these supplemental pieces. We also have advice as you finalize your college lists, from determining whether it is balanced to considering it in conjunction with your expected family contribution. To listen to other episodes, visit Getting In: A College Coach Conversation on VoiceAmerica or search for us on Apple PodcastsStitcher, or wherever you get your podcasts. While you’re there, please leave us a rating or review!
