COLLEGE SEARCH & ADMISSIONS COUNSELING
The College Admissions Environment
Increases in the number of seniors applying for college and the applications each of them submit has intensified the competitive environment encompassing the college admissions process. Constantly changing admissions requirements, particularly those attributable to the COVID-19 pandemic, have introduced significant confusion to that process. Add to this the academic, curricular, aesthetic and social differences between colleges and universities, and you have a process that can become quite onerous and stressful.
