ADDRESSING THE ADMISSIONS SCANDAL 3/13/19

Dear College Bound & Ready Friends and Families,

I am sure you have been hearing about the College Admission scandal that the FBI has been investigating and that broke open yesterday. I have been getting inquiries from families and friends on how I feel about the news, and so I want to share with you my thoughts.

First of all, sadly, I am not surprised. There are people that game every industry, every selection process and every system. Being in the college admissions business, there are a lot of things that I do not like about the industry, but I take solace in working hard to help students understand themselves better, articulate what they need or want to succeed, and in putting their best selves in front of good-fit colleges.
