The Truth About Career Planning and the College Search Process

Society's guiding "truths" about higher education are now incorrect. In What Every Parent Needs to Know About College Admissions, Christie Barnes helps parents and students alike cut through the noise and find the best school, which might not always be the most prestigious or expensive one.

College planning re-examined. All economic levels are getting vastly incorrect information for college and future planning, leading to anxiety-ridden youth and crippling student debt. Less affluent students are being led to more expensive options and high achievers feel compelled to apply for college at the most prestigious institutions. But, whether it's a state school, safety school, or public school--there are other options beside an overpriced private school.

A guidance counselor for parents. Learn that it's not just about the "right" college, it's about the "right fit" college. Using statistics, experts, and multi-factor analysis to clarify what should and should not be a worry in college planning, Barnes helps parents identify better, and often overlooked, options. In this guide, she dissects the top ten parental worries about how to get into college, including the admissions process, college requirements, and college acceptance.

Book includes a bonus "Academic Planning Guide"

  • For the high school student, the college-bound, the workforce-bound, the returning vet, those wanting or needing a career change or hoping to advance in a field
