Parent of a high school sophomore or junior? There are two things you should do today to help your child begin the college search
Knowledge is Power - EA/ED --> RD
Written by Jack Delehey on October 28th, 2022
It’s crunch time for my seniors! As each of them finalizes their early window applications this week, I wanted to let parents know why the early window of applications (Early Decision - previously discussed, but also Early Action) are tremendously beneficial.

If your high schooler can be on top of things and have their applications finalized already, strongly encourage them to submit early!

Summary of benefits:
  • Knowledge is power - Knowing your application decision can drastically reduce the # of RD apps you have to submit
  • Early apps help you maximize your merit scholarship options
In the back half of the video, I then discuss transitioning from Early Applications (due Nov. 1) to Regular applications (due Jan. 1) and how to smartly play that game (Hint: you’ll have an important risk/reward decision to make!)

Time: 9 minutes, 0 seconds
For: Parents of HS Seniors, Juniors, Sophomores, Freshmen
