Welcome as you are, chill or not! There is no world in which you should feel stressed out and alone as you muddle through college admissions with your teenager. I’m so happy you’re here because we’ll make sure that won’t happen. Here’s how I can help:
1. Download Free Resources to help you organize the college admissions journey for your family. I’m making available a few of the tools I offer in College Admissions Cracked before the book comes out because I know you need them right now. Among them: a “college shopping” worksheet to manage all the information hurling toward you like pouncing cats, and my friend Erika’s brilliant financial aid calculator that will do math so you don’t have to.
2. Join the Chill Parents’ Revolution (CPR) Newsletter (see link below) where I will share everything to help you through the college admissions odyssey with your kid including to-do lists, links to helpful corners of the Internet, and advice from my wide network of college admissions colleagues, high school counselors, parent survivors, personal essayists, family psychologists, and more. You have entered a world that delivers professional CPR, not hearsay or speculation. What’s mine is yours.
3. Snag a copy of College Admissions Cracked: Saving Your Kid (and Yourself) From the Madness. I poured a decade of experience guiding students and parents through college admissions and evaluating applications for elite colleges into this user-friendly survival guide and support group. The book will provide you with nuts, bolts, psychological support, laughter, camaraderie, and confidence as you traverse your way month by month through your child’s junior year of high school to college drop-off.
