On the Road with Betsy Woolf – College of William & Mary
The second oldest school in the United States, the College of William & Mary is a “Public Ivy” located in Williamsburg, Virginia, a city known for the historic recreation of Colonial Williamsburg. This is a college of great American traditions, such as each class beginning and ending the collegiate experience by parading through the Wren Building, the oldest college building still in use in the U.S. It is also a college of great American modern education where the finishing touches are being added to a new science facility, where students can study at both the College and the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, and where over 60% of students double major or minor. And while you are on campus, look for Thomas Jefferson. The statue was given by the University of Virginia to the College of William & Mary, Jefferson’s alma mater.
On the Road with Betsy Woolf – The University of Richmond – January 2016
I could never have forgotten the beauty of the University of Richmond, a bucolic campus I first visited ten years ago. Emphasizing a foundation in the liberal arts, its new president, Ronald Crutcher, says that UR is a school where students can become “agile” learners. UR is the first college in the country to establish a separate school for leadership, and its signature programs include leadership studies, business, and international studies.
Perhaps the best way to hear about the university is to read the words of one of my students who attends the university. When I asked about class size, he responded, “The class sizes were the biggest thing for me and they definitely were perfect for my learning style. I had as few as 8 kids in a class and as many as 25.” And as for the advice he would give to a student interested in UR: “The most beautiful campus you will most likely ever see, and it is really fun with a perfect balance between schoolwork and having a great time.”
I visited three schools during the NACAC conference: University of San Diego (USD), San Diego State University (SDSU), and the University of California at San Diego (UCSD). Each one has its own flavor.
The last time I visited USD, I toured a beautiful mission-style campus overlooking Mission Bay, and that has not changed. The emphasis is on the three Cs: collaboration, creativity and critical thinking in its schools of business administration, engineering and arts and sciences. The core curriculum includes one year of college writing and the study of ethics, and over 75% of students study abroad. Will new things be happening at this Catholic campus of 5700 undergrads that is 55% female, 48% Catholic and 44% from California? Stay tuned as a new president has recently taken the helm.
SDSU is all about spirit. A Division I university on the San Diego trolley line, SDSU has an enrollment of 30,000 undergrads and 5,000 grad students. The institution, which hosts a diverse student body, is one of the schools of the California State University system, and its out-of-state tuition is quite reasonable – $11,160. I saw a major construction project on campus, as the university is in the process of creating South Plaza, a mixed-use student housing and retail venue.
UCSD is a member of the University of California system, and the school year is divided into quarters. The 24,000 undergrad students on campus are housed among 6 residential colleges, each with its own emphasis and personality. The campus, surprisingly, is hilly and wooded, and there is a wonderful attitude here – from the house teetering at a dangerous angle atop the engineering building to the iconic Geisel Library building named after the author of the beloved Dr. Seuss books.
Inside the Admissions Office
The 8th annual Inside the Admissions program was a great success. Deans and directors from Case Western Reserve University, College of Charleston, Franklin & Marshall College, University of Chicago, University of Rochester and University of Virginia shared their insight into college admissions with a rapt audience of parents and students at the JCC of MidWestchester on October 8th.
On the Road with Betsy Woolf – The University of Cambridge – May 2015
Ah, Cambridge. It’s the quintessential charming English town, with rambling streets filled with quaint stores, restaurants, tea shops, taverns, even a canal, with most colleges clustered in and around central Cambridge.
And of course, tourists. Like Oxford, Cambridge is a college town as well as a tourist town, but once one steps onto the grounds of the individual colleges, the hustle and bustle fade away, and all that is left is the magnificence of the architecture and the close, personal education that takes place within the college walls. The undergraduate population ranges from around 200 to 600, depending on the individual undergraduate college, of which there are 29. Three of the colleges are all female. Students study in one of the individual colleges for three years but graduate from the university as a whole.
I was privileged to have met with professors in three of the colleges: Trinity College, Homerton College, and Queen’s College. Both Trinity and Queen’s are located in the heart of the old town; Homerton is more suburban. Classes at the university consist of lectures that encompass students from all of the colleges within the university and smaller seminars, called supervisions, where students meet one or one or two on one or three on one with an individual professor or supervisor. Large lectures across the colleges could be only 30 or 40 students. The school year is divided into 3 terms, 8 weeks each. There are six general areas (schools) of study within the university – arts and humanities, biological sciences, clinical medicine, humanities and social sciences, physical sciences, technology; each has a council that includes representatives of its faculties and departments, and all are represented on the university’s general board. Faculties organize the teaching and research; the subdivision of the faculties are departments.
Admission is selective. A student must apply to a particular college within the university by completing the UCAS application (the universal application in the UK) and the Cambridge Online Preliminary Application for students living outside the European Union. There is also a Supplementary Application Questionnaire (SAQ) that is emailed to the student after submission of the UCAS application. If a student does not have a preference regarding a college, he or she can make an open application, and the system will allocate the application to a particular college. If the college to which a student has applied or allocated is unable to offer a place, then the student is placed into the Winter Pool. Over a three day period in early January, colleges seeking additional applicants review applications and can either re-interview or offer a place.
The Cambridge colleges focus on APs and SAT subject tests: Typically a score of 5 in five AP tests or a minimum score of 700 in relevant SAT subject tests or an ACT of 32 with a score of 5 in AP tests and/or SAT subject tests at 700 or better.
Congratulations to the Class of 2019
Students in this year’s class will be studying diverse areas, including English Literature, Biomedical Engineering, Business, Computer Science, Theater and a wealth of liberal arts and humanities — and even playing DIII baseball.
They’ve applied to and have been accepted to colleges and universities from the University of California at Berkeley on the West Coast to Brown University in Rhode Island, north to Canadian schools like McGill University and the University of Toronto, and even across the Atlantic Ocean to Cambridge, England. They have chosen to study at Baldwin Wallace University (music theatre), Bates College, Boston University, Bucknell University, Columbia University (2), Duke University, Emory University (2), Hamilton College, Indiana University (Kelley), LIM, New York University (Stern), Tulane University, University of Cambridge, University of Chicago, University of Michigan, University of Pennsylvania, University of Texas-Austin, and Washington University in St. Louis.
On the Road with Betsy Woolf – The University of Oxford – May 2015
My first view of the City of Oxford, after leaving the high speed train from London, was of the place where I would be staying during my visit, a former prison located in a medieval castle that had been transformed into a hotel. The city, the home of the oldest university in the English-speaking world, is also a tourist haven known for its world class art and architecture museum, the Ashmolean, and for theater.
Undergraduate education at the University of Oxford, as it is properly called, is comprised of 30 autonomous co-ed colleges, each governed by its own regulations, although there is a sovereign body called Congregation that considers major policy issues. The senior officer of the university is the Vice Chancellor (the position of Chancellor is largely ceremonial). Oxford’s present Vice Chancellor will become the president of New York University in 2016, and he will be succeeded by the current Vice Chancellor of the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. She will be the first female president of Oxford.
There are four academic divisions within the university: humanities; mathematical, physical and life sciences; medical sciences; and social sciences. The individual colleges are spread out within the city, some clustered near the traditional center and centuries old, while others are located a bit farther from the center, and some are more modern. Oxford is known for its tutorial system of education in which one, two or three students study with an individual professor or tutor, although there also are lectures that are attended by students across all colleges. The school year is divided into 3 terms, 8 weeks each. An undergraduate degree is achieved in 3 years typically, and a masters degree usually for an additional year.
How does one apply? Through the universal college application system known as UCAS – and by 6 pm UK time on October 15th. A student cannot apply to both the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge. A student applying to Oxford must decide on an area of study (there is no such thing as “undecided”), and the application essay addresses in great detail the reasons why the student has chosen to study that area. There are two ways to apply. The first is to an individual college, and the decision is often formed by considering the location of the college and age of the college, since the areas of study are in most cases the same across all of the colleges. Or he or she can make what is called an “open” application in which the system randomly assigns an application to a college that offers the course to which the student will be studying. An interview is also required, which takes place in December in Oxford, and some programs even require the submission of written work to be considered when applying.
On the Road with Betsy Woolf – The University of Chicago – March 2015
One of my most interesting academic classes occurred on the subject of writing at the University of Chicago on a visit in early March. It was a sample of the education at a college where students unabashedly proclaim themselves as inquisitive and self-deprecating and willing to engage in discourse. Eighty percent of these students who “love to learn” continue to graduate school within 5 years of graduation. Chicago, a liberal arts school, features a strong core curriculum and teaching that follows the Socratic method. As a staff member once told me, Chicago alumni are people who can be identified by their tendencies to ask questions directly and their respect for well-formed answers.
My visit with a group of fellow counselors took us on a tour throughout the university where we toured its beautiful grounds and enjoyed the amazing view of Chicago and Lake Michigan from atop the new Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts, which I had last toured a few years ago prior to its opening. The center hosts concerts, screenings, performances, exhibitions, lectures, conferences and workshops through the music, visual arts, performance arts, art history, film, creative writing and poetry programs on campus.
UChicago is a selective institution. This year, 11% of early action applications were admitted, with an additional 4% via regular decision, of which 1% were students deferred from the early pool. Although long known for its strength in economics and the sciences, programs of study run the gamut from English Language and Literature to Chicago Studies to Geophysical Sciences to a bevy of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations to Statistics. The university has recently opened an Institute of Politics spearheaded by alum and political journalist and policy advisor David Axelrod.
On the Road with Betsy Woolf – College of Charleston – February 2015
The student/faculty ratio is 16 to one; there are no teaching assistants; and the largest class is probably no more than 120 students (Introduction to Biology and Introduction to Psychology, for example). With only 1500 graduate students, the College of Charleston is a public liberal arts college that focuses on undergraduate education.
My two-day counselor visit took me and a group of fellow counselors throughout the university where we toured its gracious Southern grounds, its marine science facility on nearby St. John’s Island, its sports facilities (Charleston is particularly strong in sailing), and Harbor Walk, a facility near the Charleston Aquarium that houses the Department of Computer Science. We sat in on classes – my digital media class was engaging – and met with faculty from a number of programs, including computer science, hospitality, marine biology and the honors college. Areas of study run the gamut from discovery informatics to historic preservation to arts management to public health to biology. The students we met were universal in their love of the community feeling on campus, as well as the hospitality of the people of the city of Charleston, where almost everything is within walking distance. Charleston is home to Boeing and to a number of rising technology start up companies, and of course, a thriving tourism industry.
Students apply to the College of Charleston itself, not to a particular major, and once on campus, there are ample areas of studies and experience from which to choose, including student exchange and study abroad programs, a sea semester, a program at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Maine, and iCharleston, an opportunity for freshmen to spend the first semester abroad in London, Dublin or British Columbia. There is Greek life on campus, an honor code, research opportunities for undergraduates, and a one month “Maymester” in which students can obtain internships, take classes or engage in research.
On the Road with Betsy Woolf – Lewis & Clark College, Portland, Oregon – January 2015
The address is Portland, Oregon, but the Lewis & Clark campus is a beautiful, rural enclave only 6 miles from downtown. Students do use the city (there is a school shuttle). The site of a former estate, the college has retained the manor house, one of the prettiest Admissions Offices I’ve seen, as well as a rose garden, a reflecting pool and plenty of green spaces.
Lewis & Clark has a global focus, and more than half of students study abroad in semester and year-long programs. All freshmen take a year-long class called Exploration and Discovery, small seminars taught by professors from a range of disciplines that present an overview of important works and projects in the liberal arts. Most classes at the school feature between 19 to 22 students, which encourages discussion and close relationships with professors.
According to the college, Lewis & Clark is a place for an academic achiever, an independently minded scholar who loves a challenge, a planner with the ability to carry through on projects, a creative and collaborative thinker, a committed and open-minded member of the global community, and a multitalented person with diverse interests. Many students are outdoorsy, and as one of my tour guides said, even if you aren’t an outdoorsy type, you will become one just by living in Portland!
On the Road with Betsy Woolf – Reed College, Portland, Oregon – January 2015
Reed is a distinctive place where the intellectual life thrives in a suburban Portland campus just 15 minutes from downtown. The campus school with a canyon in its midsection is intense academically but not competitive. Classes are capped at 24; all freshmen participate in a year-long Humanities 110 class; and only majors, not minors, are offered. This is a place where learning takes place for learning’s sake; students receive feedback from professors through extensive written evaluations. There is an honor principle, not a code, and exams are unproctored. In addition, each student must pass a junior qualifying examination before beginning to create a senior thesis based on original research or artistic expression. No wonder that a large number of Reedies go on to graduate school.
Although lots of students are outdoorsy, it’s not a requirement, although one student told me that “Portland makes you outdoorsy.” The college owns a ski cabin in Mt. Hood, about an hour and a half away, that is free to students to use.
Academics are important, but Reedies know how to have fun. Getting dressed in costumes is popular, and not just for Halloween. There is an annual rugby event in which the team dresses up in prom dresses; a bonfire on campus celebrates the submission of senior theses; Nitrogen Day celebrates the element; and a soccer game features participants wearing T-shirts with funky sayings that are printed in the school print shop. Professors are on a first name basis, and profs and students alike can bring their dogs to class. And finally, there is the tradition of scrounging, which actually is what the name implies, in which students leave their leftover food at a special table in the cafeteria for students who are not on the meal plan.
As my tour guide said, Reed is a funky place!
On the Road with Betsy Woolf – Worcester Polytechnic University (WPI), Worcester, Massachusetts – December 2014
A return visit to WPI found a campus and students just as impressive as in the past with women now constituting almost a third of the population and 13% of students hailing from outside the United States. Sixty percent of students study engineering, 20% study life sciences and math, and 13% study computer science and game development. Robotics and interactive media and game development are particularly popular. About a third of students double major or minor, often outside of STEM fields in business or the humanities.
WPI operates on a quarter system with four 7-week terms, three classes per term. Classes meet regularly four days a week and labs are scheduled on Wednesdays. Students are focused, and the retention rate is high – around 98%. But they don’t spend all of their time in the classroom – the school is about 45% Greek.
The curriculum is project oriented, and students must complete four projects in order to graduate. Students are encouraged to travel and can complete their projects abroad in places like London and Melbourne. In fact, WPI has 44 project centers around the world.
Admission criteria include either submission of standardized testing (for the SATs, WPI considers the math section and either writing or critical reading) or the Flex Path option: submission of examples of academic work or extracurricular projects, such as written descriptions of science projects or mechanical design concepts. Last year’s overall admission rate was 44%.
On the Road with Betsy Woolf – Clark University, Worcester, Massachusetts – December 2014
Applications are increasing at Clark University, whose admission rate has gone from 77% not too long ago to 52% overall last year. Popular majors on campus include psychology (Freud lectured on campus and his statue figures prominently near the main gate), political science (American politics and policy, comparative politics, international relations), cultural studies and communication, economics, and the biological sciences.
Around 15% of students are international, hailing from such areas as China, Latin America and Ethiopia, and the Jewish student population is approaching 20%. Students here are unpretentious, friendly and inclusive, the kind of students who invite others to share their dining tables, I was told repeatedly, and many are involved in community service. Clark sponsors 40 of its own study abroad programs, a large number for a small liberal arts college. Students also take advantage of Clark’s 5th year tuition-free option in 14 disciplines, including business (MBA) and finance (MSF), as well as the sciences, community development & planning, public administration (MPA) and Teaching (MAT).
Since my last visit, the school has renovated its dining hall, and menu options include foods for students who are vegetarian, diary free, vegan, gluten free and kosher. Dorms have been renovated as well. In the spring, the school plans to break ground on a new building that will house the offices of the LEEP program, Clark’s Liberal Education and Effective Practice program that personalizes each student’s journey through the university through academics and extracurricular experiences. One of the hallmarks of the program is that each student is assigned a LEEP advisor the entire time he or she is at Clark, in addition to an academic advisor.
A Great Night for Inside the Admissions Office
The 7th annual Inside the Admissions Office program was a resounding success! Thank you to the 200 high school students and parents who attended the program at the JCC of Mid-Westchester. A special thank you to the deans and directors from Binghamton University, Franklin & Marahall College, Syracuse University, Swarthmore College, Union College, and the University of Chicago who provided a thoughtful, informative and entertaining glimpse into applying to college.
On the Road with Betsy Woolf – Savannah College of Art & Design June 2014
With its admissions building located on perhaps the prettiest street in Savannah, Bull Street, just steps away from bucolic Forsyth Park, the Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD) is an urban school that is all about the arts – fashion, fine arts, entertainment arts, building arts, communication arts, design and digital media. It’s located in a Southern city noted for its history, hospitality, architecture, culture and live oak trees dripping with Spanish moss.
Most of the SCAD buildings, which are located throughout a three-mile area of downtown Savannah, have been restored, and a shuttle bus system is available to take students around the “campus,” although many students bike. The program is on a quarter system – 10 weeks per quarter with a seven-week long winter break. There are liberal arts requirements, which vary by program, and students do not have to declare their majors until the end of freshman year.
Students studying at SCAD will find small classes. Lectures are capped at 30 students, and studio classes are capped at 20. The food served on campus is predominately organic and local. There is a tea room run by SCAD students, a SCAD Museum of Art, a SHOPSCAD that features goods created by SCAD students and grads, and activities that include an International Festival, a Sidewalk Arts Festival in Forsyth Park, and a celebration of fashion, design, architecture and of course, style, called SCAD Style that features industry experts like Alexander Wang and Betsy Johnson. Shows at Trustees Theater include 3D films; it also is the site of the annual SCAD Film Festival.
Students who apply to SCAD apply to the entire university, so in addition to studying in Savannah, they can study in Hong Kong, Atlanta and Lacoste, France, just outside of Paris. Portfolios and auditions are not required for undergraduate admission, although applicants are encouraged to present portfolios or audition when possible to enhance their applications and to be considered for scholarships. Once a student applies (admissions decisions are made on a rolling basis), he or she works with a personal admission staff member who will recommend any additions to the file, such as letters of recommendation or a resume. The average test scores at SCAD are an SAT of 1000 (critical reading and writing) or an ACT of 21. Students apply using the SCAD application.
Oh yes, and the beach is only 20 minutes away!
On the Road with Betsy Woolf – Dartmouth College May 2014
The Dartmouth “Shuttle” (actually a full-size coach bus that picks up and discharges passengers near Grand Central Station in NYC) took me to and from the Dartmouth campus for a return trip in May. What I found was a campus of 4,276 undergrads and 2,066 graduate students where the key words are access, flexibility and engagement. With such a small number of grad students, the focus is on the undergraduate experience at a school that views itself as a liberal arts college with the resources of a larger research institution. Dartmouth is very committed to expanding diversity of all kinds on its campus.
Access – I heard a lot about access to professors and resources from administrators, faculty and students. There is an 8 to 1 student/faculty ratio, and 99% of classes are taught by faculty. One student in particular told a story about emailing his professor one Sunday morning with a question regarding his work and in return obtaining an invitation to her house where they talked about his question over coffee.
Flexibility – The Dartmouth Plan: Four ten week terms in which students take three classes per term – and study an average of three terms per year. That allows students to go abroad for multiple terms. In fact, 60% of students study abroad. Dartmouth is also known for its Sophomore Summer in which the entire sophomore class spends the summer term on campus.
Engagement – Professors want students to obtain an experiential education, not just through study abroad commitments. Because of the small number of graduate students, research opportunities abound for undergrads, not just in the sciences, but throughout the curriculum. Through the Presidential Scholars program, students can obtain course credit or get paid for their research endeavors. One of the professors spoke about how students in her history classes work in clusters as teams, something that is encouraged throughout the academic experience. I heard a lot from professors, too, about how they bring in lots of visiting experts to teach and meet with students and the various student organizations on campus.
One of the highlights of the trip was hearing about the Dickey Center for International Understanding and the Thayer School of Engineering. Among other things, the Dickey Center develops programs to encourage students to apply their classroom lessons globally. Among the programs are a minor in international studies; a War and Peace Studies Fellows Program in which students from varied academic areas participate in discussions about international conflict and cooperation and spend a week in Washington, D.C., meeting with policy makers; a Great Issues class where students are introduced to key issues in international affairs (it’s a popular no-credit class that seats about 100 students); and an initiative on human development in which students conduct mentored research and field work.
Regarding engineering at Dartmouth, as one professor said, Thayer wants to graduate “liberally educated engineers.” Students are Dartmouth students first and then choose to study engineering, fulfilling the same liberal arts distribution requirements as their arts and science comrades. Engineering students do study abroad, and can study engineering abroad, although the vast majority are studying the arts and sciences, expanding their perspectives of how technology fits into the broader needs of humans in the world. There is a 10-year plan to build another engineering facility and to increase the number of faculty and to accommodate a greater number of engineering students.
Congratulations to the College Class of 2018
It’s been another wonderful year at Woolf College Consulting. Fanning out in all directions, students are excited about the colleges to which they will be attending.
Their studies will range from architecture, business and engineering to the many disciplines of the liberal arts and sciences, including linguistics, biology, philosophy, physics, creative writing, history, international studies, genetics, music and theater arts. Multiple students will be attending the University of Pennsylvania, Cornell University, University of Michigan and Emory University. Some of the other schools to which students will be attending include Georgetown University, University of Virginia, Wake Forest University, University of Southern California, Tufts University, Santa Clara University, Bucknell University, Dickinson College and University of Richmond.
Trends in College Admission 2014
Peter Johnson, Director of Undergraduate Admissions for Columbia University, recently addressed a meeting of professional members of the Independent Educational Consultants Association. As a professional member of IECA, I was in that audience.
Following are some highlights from his speech:
*The Importance of Supplements to Applications, especially the response to the question as to why the student wants to attend a particular college or university. Do you want to know what a college values? Look at its supplemental questions.
*Demonstration of a Student’s Independent Intellectual Curiosity, especially through what students read and whether they have taken advantage of the resources available to them.
*A Personal Reason for Wanting to Attend a Particular School. Is there something beyond the obvious? Yes, you like the philosophy behind Columbia’s Core Curriculum, but, for example, is there a professor with whom you want to study or with whom you want to do research?
*Authenticity in a Student’s Application. If you tell a college that you want to study a particular subject, does your application reflect a genuine interest and background that relates to that interest?
*Harmony in a Student’s Application. Are all voices reflected in an application in harmony – the student, the teacher, the guidance counselor, the school (transcript and profile)?
*The Continued Development of “Niche” Admissions in which colleges will continue to look for students who have developed special talents and areas.
*An Expected Increase in Interest among selective colleges in under-represented, first generation, low income students, an interest championed by the Obama Administration.
*The Importance of Teacher Recommendations that should tell the story of the student’s life in the classroom over a period of time with as much detail as possible.
A “Slice” of Woolf College Consulting
Betsy has been featured in The Slice, a newsletter about college admissions and standardized testing. Read on to find out what led Betsy to the profession of college consulting and what she loves the most about her job:
“I think my entire academic and professional life led me to this business – and a little encouragement from some key people: my husband and children, of course; Phyllis Steinbrecher, one of the pioneers in independent consulting and a great lady; Barbara Hall, the then Admissions Director at NYU who is now the Associate Provost for Enrollment Services at the NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering; and my friend Allison Leopold, currently a professor at the Fashion Institute of Technology, whose son immediately became my first client when I told her that I was contemplating a career change.
I guess I should thank my parents, too, who asked their daughter, a political science and history double major at NYU who graduated magna cum laude, to study secondary education, as well, so that I would have a fallback career! I did that and still think fondly of a few of the students I taught as a student-teacher, but I also went on to receive a J.D. from the Maurice A Deane School of Law at Hofstra University and then to a career as an attorney and later as a journalist, especially as an editor of a trio of parenting magazines for New York and Connecticut.
So it has all come together: the best parts of my background culminating in a career that is already 10 years old. What do I like most about college consulting? Well, there are many but a few stand out: working with the students, especially brainstorming ideas with them; making so many great friends in the industry; presenting the free annual Inside the Admissions Office program to the Westchester County community each fall; and relieving so much of the anxiety about the college search and application process for families.”
Inside the Admissions Office
JCC of Mid-Westchester, Scarsdale, N.Y.
Once again, the popular Inside the Admissions Office program in Westchester County was a resounding success. Thank you to the students and families who attended the sixth annual program and to the panel of admissions deans and directors from American University, Emory University, Lafayette College, the University of Chicago, Vanderbilt University and the University of Maryland.
Congratulations to the College Class of 2017
This has been another banner year in which students have made the best college matches. Some of the schools to which students will be attending include Yale University, University of Chicago, University of Pennsylvania, Columbia University, Stanford University, Vanderbilt University, Washington University in St. Louis, University of Michigan, Northwestern University, University of Southern California, Cornell University, Hamilton College, and the University of Rochester.
Betsy’s Interview on Popular College Planning Website
Betsy is featured on CollegeXpress where she gives insight and advice on college consulting (with a little ‘fun stuff’ that will help you get to know her better).
