Ep. 60 | The Importance of Class Selection

In this episode, I examine why "rigor of classes" is the only place left for Admissions Officers to assess your child's college-readiness.

Show Notes:

In this episode, I discuss how the admissions process is changing right before our eyes and how "class selection" has become even more important than GPA or SAT/ACT scores.  How do you approach the class selection process to make sure you get it right?
