A little over a year ago, I did a post specifically to answer questions from parents, and I thought I would revisit this theme. While I love working with and answering questions from students, parents seem to be put in the background at times during the college admissions process. You hear the term “helicopter parent” and hear horror stories about over-zealous moms and dads, but for the most part they are just trying to help their children navigate the often confusing process of college admissions.
A number of colleges try to connect with parents, through email blasts, mailings or other connections, trying to give the family more information. In fact, I am going to have an email go out today, right before I upload this post, sent to all the parents of the students who have applied so far. Please know that since we have over 11,000 applicants, this could lead to a large number of questions, so please be patient with me as I respond.
So here is your chance, parents. What questions do you have that you are dying to ask? If possible, please do not post as Anonymous (just make up a name so you can see my reply specifically to your question), ask whatever questions you would like through the comment option, and I will try to respond as quickly as possible. Fire Away!
