Free Info Session Getting Into College – Writing Your Personal Statement

Free Information Session – Friday Sept 13, 2019

Open to all students and parents.

  • How to answer Common App or UC prompts effectively
  • What NOT to worry about and how to de-stress the process
  • How to support the emerging adult in your college-bound teen
  • And more…
