Ready, Set, College! webinar recaps
Updated: Nov 4
Every fall we host a webinar series called Ready, Set, College! to guide students through the important (and sometimes confusing) steps in applying to college and for financial aid. Thanks to those who are joining in, asking questions, and sharing their own experiences. For those who aren't able to attend the sessions live, no worries — we'll post the recordings and slides here for you to review.
Session #1: College Apps, Step-by-Step
This week, I walked students and families through application elements, where to find them, and how to request required documents. Plus I threw in some tips and tools to keep you on track! Click here for the slides
Session #2: Making the Most of Your Essays
As an English major turned college counselor, I'll always have lots to say about what it takes to write a personal statement you can feel proud of. That's just what we did this week as we dove into the topic of entrance essays — strategies for different prompts, stylistic do's and don'ts, resources to use along the way, and more!

Session #3: Paying for College
How much debt does the average student graduate with? What is a financial aid award letter? Why should I complete the FAFSA? Where can I find scholarships and how many should I apply for? Get answers to these questions and more in our final session of this webinar series. Click here for the slides.
