·         The importance of SAT and ACT test, as well as preparation and scheduling

·         How admission committees evaluate applicants

·         Things to keep in mind when writing the college essay.

·         Lessons learned from getting two kids into college.

·         What is “fit,” and why is it important?

·         How to handle the parent-child relationship during the college admissions process.
