I love that quote. Have you heard it before? It's very appropriate when it comes to college. In getting college right, you must know that the Admissions & Application season begins with the live launch of The Common App.
If you know the process for submitting completed and timely applications, then you know that August is the month to get rolling. You would also know that complexities exist within applications that you can't ignore in hopes your child knows better...that would be a big mistake. However, it's a mistake you could learn from for your next child's college, ugh!
Let's get to winning by learning now, not later.
Well-written and early submitted applications win higher acceptance rates and bigger scholarships. Why? Because it reflects in a serious intention of the student and importance to the student.
Poorly-written and late submitted applications are not well received, typically resulting in quick denials and an important learning lesson...a costly lesson at that.
Why do student-families submit late applications? Because they are not due yet. After all, deadlines are still months away.
Why do students submit poorly-written or incomplete applications? Because they get rushed.
I ask you one question-
Is having your child's application rushed and submitted just under the deadline an effective strategy for winning college acceptances and scholarships?
Our families win preferred acceptances and maximum scholarships by getting ahead early. You can too. If you would like to discuss how then book an appointment with me now.
We discuss these things and much more on our educational webinars. Join us on my next webinar coming up shortly.
