We blogged recently about an article written by Brennan Barnard, a College Counselor at a private school in New Hampshire, about how the college admissions process had become something akin to The Hunger Games.

Now, in a new Washington Post article by Mr. Barnard, he furthers his beliefs that “It really doesn’t matter where you go to college.”   He encourages students and their parents to recognize that a good education can be found at less celebrated non-ivy schools where students learn and continue on to lead successful and meaningful lives. Here’s a link to his article.

Mr. Brennan says that most often, the really difficult work begins after being accepted to multiple colleges in having to make the final choice.  We can’t help but agree.  

We encourage our clients to be intentional and diligent in their final college decision.  It is a life investment on many levels and should not be taken casually.  Having benefit of guidance in making such an important life decision is a small price to pay especially when considering the potentially high cost of a less than great fit.

During this difficult time, we are here for you, as we always have been, to help consider safe, educational and therapeutic opportunities for your adolescent/young adult.
