Facebook Live Recap: Ask America's College Counselor (2.15.23)

I hosted a Facebook Live Q&A in the month of February to answer college admissions questions on topics like course selection, submitting test scores, letters of recommendation, and much more!

If you missed this Facebook Live Q&A, keep reading for a list of some of the questions I answered and to watch the full video.

  • Do selective small liberal arts colleges prefer students to apply undecided rather than to a specific major?
  • My daughter's school limits students to three AP classes per year. What are the "must-have" APs for junior and senior year?
  • The Supreme Court is likely to end affirmative action this June. How will this decision impact college admissions?
  • Can you have a teacher from sophomore year write a letter of recommendation?
  • If a student lives in one county but goes to school in a different county, which county will the student fall under for admissions purposes? 
  • My child was deferred from her Early Decision school. She sent a letter of continued interest. Can she also send an email to the local admissions rep with an update?
  • How does applying test optional affect your chances of admission?
  • If you are 100% sure you are going to a certain school, should you withdraw your other applications so someone else can have a spot?
  • My daughter is taking five APs in her junior year. Does it matter if she takes fewer (four) APs in her senior year?
  • Does it look bad if you don’t submit AP test scores to colleges?
  • How does applying to the same college as a twin or triplet affect the admission chances for both?
