Episode #41: College Visits Made Easy with Moira McCullough

Are you stressing out about your (or your child’s) college visits? Don’t worry! We’re here to help. In this episode of Demystifying College Admissions, we have our guest, Moira McCullough, the founder of College Scoops. Enlisting student and parent ambassadors, College Scoops provides both college-bound students and parents with the inside scoop that goes beyond what is available on college websites.

TUNE IN BELOW:

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN ABOUT IN THIS EPISODE:

  • How to plan an effective college visit 
  • How to engage your child in the planning process
  • How involved parents should be in the process
  • The importance/value of reaching out and interacting with a current student on campus 
  • The #1 mistake students and parents make on college visits

NOTABLE QUOTES:

We believe college visits should and can be fun.
Make sure you have a destination to go to, but make sure that you plan several excursions that are not on your formal list.
Sometimes the greatest learning points are things that you didn’t anticipate.
I think you will learn so much during those visits by just watching and supporting your student.
If you put them in the driver’s seat, I think that will create a different outcome and a different opportunity for that student.
You have to be proactive about where you’re going to go.
At the end of the day, it’s their decision.
It’s a marathon, not a sprint.
