Happy August YWLC Alumni! We hope your transition back to school goes super smoothly and that you’re feeling fully restored from a fun summer. For those who attended this month’s meeting, you know that Bonnie Treece, college counselor and admissions expert, helped us dive deep into the art of college applications and scholarships! Here are some excellent resources to prepare you for your college application process!

College Reviews + Information

Bonnie recommends both The Princeton Review, Niche, and US News & World Report for college info.

When researching schools, be sure to rely HEAVILY on the school’s own website.
Tip: You can look up the school’s Common Data Set to see the stats of students they accepted and see how you measure up.
