Facebook Live Recap: Ask America's College Counselor (2.16.22)

I had a great time answering questions during February's Facebook Live Q&A on topics like the SAT, college lists, course selection, and much more!

If you missed this month's session of Ask America's College Counselor, keep reading for a list of some of the questions I answered and to watch the full video.

  • How should accepted students reject acceptances from schools they are not planning to attend?
  • An elite college sent a letter to my son saying that he would be a good fit based on test scores. Is this unusual?
  • How much does the SAT matter these days?
  • Any tips on how and when to negotiate merit scholarships and need-based aid?
  • What do colleges think of online high schools?
