What do you think about that quote? I believe it!
Think about your college search for a moment…
- What do you see as the path and the steps?
- Who is influencing the scope of your vision? The guidance department, your parents, your friends?
- What are the implications of not discovering the entire landscape of the process?
I’ll tell you the consequences of a view with blinders… The potential to make a BIG mistake! When you don’t know the pieces to the puzzle it’s difficult to complete it with confidence. And, if you’re thinking that guidance counselors or college advisors have the time to share the scope of the college search and the many steps on the path-think again! In most schools those supporting you in your search are focused on the completion of paperwork—which is important yet secondary to understanding yourself and finding the colleges that are the right fit.
Make sure that you’re seeing all the steps on the path. My new ebook, Making the GRADE: Discovering the Colleges That Are the Right Fit for You! launches September 17th.
