TUNE IN BELOW:

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN ABOUT IN THIS EPISODE:

  • The importance of being true to yourself/authentic so you and the college are a good fit for each other
  • The best first step towards looking for a college fit
  • Key questions to ask when choosing a college
  • Common errors with college visits and what you should actually do

NOTABLE QUOTES:

If a school doesn’t want you for who you really are, then that’s not the right school for you.
There is an instinctive, visceral, mystical thing that happens when you set foot on a campus.
It’s not where you go; it’s what you do when you get there, and it’s what you do when you get out of there.
Figure out what you love and what you’re good at and go for it, and dream big
Don’t get caught up in the rankings.
