Ep. 109 | If Not The Ivies, Then Where?

If the Ivy League is out of reach, what's your next move?

Show Notes:

In this episode, I make suggestions on how to make a college decision assuming you will not get into one of the Top 10 most-selective schools. Given that these schools have single-digit acceptance rates, this would cover just about everyone.  How should you shift your mindset if the Ivy League is off the table?
