The college process can be overwhelming, especially for high school seniors and their parents. It is an exciting time, but it can also be stressful and daunting.
With so much pressure to get into the "best" schools or the "dream" schools, it can be easy to lose sight of what really matters. The reality is that college is just a small part of your life, but your aspirations and dreams don't have to be.
That's why it's important to focus on what your child wants for their future. While it's important to choose a school that can help them achieve their goals, it's equally important to keep the long-term aspirations in mind.
What do they want to do with their life?
What do they hope to accomplish?
These are the questions they should ask when considering their college options. Instead of getting caught up in the competition and rankings, focus on what really matters and what will help them achieve their dreams.
Seek advice and guidance from those who have gone through it before. Your child should talk to you, friends, mentors, and educators. Attend college fairs, information sessions, and campus tours.
Ask questions and explore all of the options. With support and guidance, they can make informed decisions that align with their dreams and aspirations. Enlist help when it comes to the college application process, from filling out forms to writing essays to preparing for interviews.
