A Few Myths about College Admissions:
Myth: It’s the high school’s job to take care of college applications.
Fact: Guidance counselors have lots of competing demands on their time and many students to look after.
Myth: It’s more expensive to attend a private college or university than a public one.
Fact: For surprisingly many families, a private college is far less expensive than a public university.
Myth: Good students are generally knowledgeable and sensible about the college application process.
Fact: Even good students procrastinate on writing essays, miss deadlines, and rely on misinformation from
friends. College applications can lead good students to drive themselves and their parents crazy!
