My guest on this episode of The College Checklist Podcast is Becky Georgenes, a Senior Admissions Consultant at Road to College. In this interview, Becky and I discuss how students can stand out with authenticity in the college admissions process by finding their passions and pursuing activities that tie in with those passions.
Becky gives us some fresh insight into what colleges want from students. I think many of you will find her advice calming. The college admissions process isn’t about doing it all. It’s about finding your student’s calling and participating in activities that are a true reflection of you student’s passions.
