Helping Your Child Find a College by Asking the Right Questions

Like any research project, finding the right school for your college-bound teenager starts with questions. Your questions are likely:

  • What careers will my child feel fulfilled by and ultimately financially stable?
  • Is there a college that meets my criteria and my child’s study interests and student life expectations?
  • How likely is it that these colleges will admit my child?
  • What financial aid and scholarships is my family and child eligible for, and how can we make sure to apply?

College counseling by CollegeChoiceToday also starts with questions. In fact, the program starts with a coach interviewing the parents and students separately to assess their interests and hopes from college.

The questions in the initial interview focus in on factors like the location and size of the school, field of study, test scores, and student lifestyle.

We’re hooked into the U.S. Department of Education and its database of over 7,500 schools. After the interviews we develop a short list of schools, including a stretch school and safety school.
