Whether you are a student or parent, the college admission’s process can be stressful and mystifying. How do you choose a school that is the best fit for you? What about finances? What’s the average number of schools a student typically applies to? Should equal valence be given to academics and social/cultural environments? When is the best time for students to begin to look at colleges? How important is an on-site visit to schools?
Is requesting an interview the best way to go even if it's not a requirement for admissions?
In short, what are the most important things to consider when applying to colleges?
Our guest today is Sheryl Santiago, independent educational consultant and owner of Coll-Edge Partners, LLC. Ms. Santiago is a member of the Higher Education Consultants Association.
Her business philosophy is based on the belief that there is no reason to focus on one dream school or think that getting into a particular college will determine a students' success in life. In fact, the "Best College" is the one that is the best fit for your individual student, and the good news is that students generally have many choices. A successful search is not about name or prestige- it's about where your student will have the best opportunity to thrive.
Sheryl Santiago works with students to determine a good mix of 8-10 schools, help them through the visit, interview, essay and application process and in many cases, after acceptance, can help parents appeal for more gifts, grants and scholarship monies. She knows that not every school is right or affordable for every student, so she takes a realistic approach with each family.
A Nursing Home Admission can be very stressful things for botht he patient and the family helping them. Most people have very little information about nursing homes until they are forced to use them. In this episode of the Fischer Report we will look at the Nursing Home Admission process and provide tips that will make the process easier and less stressful.
Tony Fischer will be joined by Michelle Salvetti of the Lakeland Center. Michelle will help our listeners understand how to find a nursing home and what you need for admission.

Nation of Islam commemoration brings light, life, power to cities and towns across America in preparation for major address by Min. Farrakhan Feb. 22
CHICAGO (FinalCall.com) - Saving the lives of Black people, delivering words of enlightenment, standing for the oppressed and charting a way forward in a world of confusion are essential to the mission of the Nation of Islam.
In 2015, the movement marks its 85th year in America and the mission to save Black people and the oppressed, the mission to offer light and the mission to provide divine guidance will encompass this year’s Saviours’ Day commemoration in the third week in February.
Instead of making a journey to Chicago, the Nation’s headquarters, mosques and study groups will stay in their local areas, open their doors, join community partners and present celebrations, workshops, protests and local viewing of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan’s keynote address Feb. 22, which is titled “The Intensifying Universal Cry for Justice.”
The Minister will speak live in Chicago at 2 p.m. CST at Christ Universal Temple, located at 11901 S. Ashland and doors will open at 12 noon. Admission is free and the program will be broadcast at NOI.org.

After Sony attempted to reboot its “Spider-Man” franchise with Andrew Garfield as the web slinger, the studio is ready to give it a third try, this time with Kevin Feige, the man who has produced 10 consecutive blockbusters for Marvel Studios.
A deal to free up Spider-Man to appear in the Marvel cinematic universe, starting in 2017, is a clear admission by Sony that its superhero strategy with one of the most popular comicbook heroes around simply isn’t working.
That’s especially true at a time when the studio is desperate for some major film franchises. Struggling with one of the comicbook industry’s most popular superheroes was starting to get embarrassing — especially when “Guardians of the Galaxy,” starring a cast of misfits unknown to most moviegoers, broke out as a bigger hit in 2014 than the last “Spider-Man” movie when it made $774 million. “The Amazing Spider Man 2″ earned nearly $709 million worldwide.
“The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ just wasn’t the billion-dollar hit that Sony’s Amy Pascal had been looking for last year — and needed to be in order to keep full control over the character. That movie became the lowest grossing film of Sony’s five Spidey films to date, and forced the studio to instantly start rethinking its plans for the character, even giving up a piece of the franchise.

Hr 1 Greece wants the EU bank to let them make payments on their debt based on their economic recovery. So if they aren't improving, they won't pay as much? Is that how your mortgage or car loan works? Mine doesn't. But that would be nice!
Don't you think that BY NOW President Obama would have a clue (plan, strategy, something!) as to how to deal with ISIS by now?
The unemployment rate at 5.6%. YAY! YAY?? Wait, those aren't real. They don't include people who haven't found a job and no longer qualify for unemployment. It's as if they don't even exist...
San Francisco minimum wage increases to $15/hr. Long time bookstore announces it's closure, as a result.
Hr 2 Major General Paul E. Vallely, U.S. Army (ret.) candidly discusses Obama's impact on the military, the Middle East, the budget (cuts), and the overall impact that the sequestration had on our military forces.
The IRS has confirmed that illegals will be eligible for tax credits. Are you kidding me?! They've costed us money just by being here. They've taken American worker jobs, filled seats meant for American children in schools. And now we're just going to start giving them tax refunds?! Thanks Obama, another wonderful (aka, stupid) idea.
Hr 3 Why has the price of eggs gone up so much in California? You dumb clucks voted for it! Farmers forced to make costly henhouse renovations.
Lumber sexual men? I guess that's the new "in" thing. Sounds like Duck Dynasty wanna-be's to me.
982,000 work permits were given to illegal immigrants and other foreign nationals who did not qualify for admission. Why?
