How to Choose a College: Making college choices during COVID.  Wednesday December 2, 7:00-8:00 pm. In this webinar, you will learn how to create a quality college list when you can't visit and get to know any of the students on campus. We'll answer questions like: Are there tools that can help? Where do I start? How many colleges should I consider? We will go over a toolset that will personalize a decision criteria system for each student. Additionally, once accepted, find out how to choose the right college for you during this pandemic. Join us for this can't-miss event!
