Less Stress Means Submitting Well Ahead of Deadlines
I have had a flurry--no, a snowstorm--of last minute emails asking me to help students with essays for Cornell, Yale, Boston College, Duke, Tufts...you get the picture. These are essays that require a lot of time for both the student and me. I truly hate to say no to families, but as most of you know, I don't work after December 20th. My business philosophy is to reduce the stress of a stressful process by getting all of the work of applying to college out of the way early, in fact as early as possible.
I have agreed to meet with a few new families who are considering switching a Regular Decision application to an ED II. I get it, and I'm happy to give an hour of my time and share what I'm hearing about decisions from my colleagues and students (anonymously of course). So far, this year's decisions are strange to say the least, happily surprising some and shocking others.
We are all in this together, and I will do all I can to help. Thoughtful planning for the college process matters--throughout high school and now.
Happy Holidays to all and wishes for a a happier, healthier 2021.
