In this episode of The College Checklist Podcast, I interviewed Jeannie Borin, President of College Connections. Jeannie walks us through the college admissions process as a whole, touching on the tasks that students should focus on in each year of high school.
This are the big-ticket, top-line items that provide families with a checklist that will guide them through high school.
While there are many nuances to each of the steps we discuss and different ways to approach many of them, Jeannie does a wonderful job of summing up the important information every family should know about as they begin to prepare for the college admissions process.
I hope you’ll enjoy this episode and find it helpful in putting the whole process of college admissions in perspective.
