College planning for high school students can be stressful. There’s a lot to consider for both parents and students. Big school or small school? Public or private? Which programs match your student’s interest and goals? From essays, to recommendation letters, to standardized tests, the admissions process may look a lot different than what their parents experienced.
While tuition costs are rising with no end in sight, the bar of admission to good schools keeps getting set higher and higher. Coupled with rising student debt rates and stagnant starting salaries, choosing the right school has become one of the most expensive and important decisions a parent can help their child make to start them on the right foot into the adult world.
