How to Major in You and Find the Right College

How to Major In You and Find the Right College is a proven 5 step process that helps teens shift from anxious, confused, and overwhelmed to confident, organized, and successful in their searches. This visual coaching program enables teens to develop their lists of colleges that are the right fit and, ultimately, choose the right match!

Dr. Jill Greenbaum’s 5 step process, Making the GRADE, is the easiest, fastest, least expensive way to create the short list of colleges that are the best matches! The steps are:

  • GOALSET – get clear on who you are, by identifying your strengths, needs, wants, and challenges, both academically and socially
  • RESEARCH – learn about the path to choosing colleges, where you are on the path and what colleges seek in students
  • ANALYZE – appraise your academic record and extracurricular activities, and draft a list of colleges
  • DECIDE – determine the colleges that are the best matches, move forward with completing applications and interviews for a select group of colleges
  • EVALUATE – reflect on who you are becoming and choose which college environment will enable you to thrive

In this book, teens step into responsibility for their search, engage in Dr. Greenbaum’s “coach approach” to the college search, use her visual maps and multimedia resources to complete—and thrive—during the journey. In it, teens discover strategies, tools, and tips designed to help them enjoy (most of) the college selection process. This hands–on approach is fresh, different, and totally engaging—the way the college search should be!
