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.
Application packaging, one of CollegePrepExpress’s THREE specialty areas, is arguably THE single most important criterion for college admissions. Join Dr. and special guest Jean Hanff Korelitz, author of Admission, the fabulous novel on which the recent Tina Fey and Paul Rudd movie is based. Their discussion about her book, the movie, and her experience as an application reader for Princeton University will help you present yourself in the best possible light in your applications.

Franny Armstrong is a mother of three and a grandmother of four. Her husband supports her imagination and has the patience of a saint. She’s been writing since she was a child, creating plays to act out in front of the neighborhood children. She charged them five cents admission to join her in the family garage for the play.
Since 2002, after a serious breakdown, Franny had to express herself on the computer since she couldn’t speak, everything coming out gibberish at that time. She’s slowly healed to the point that she can function fairly well. Writing was the best medicine for her and still is.
Franny, an author of paranormal romance stories, also loves to write about rainforests and Caribbean islands rather than about cities. Her characters are well rounded and share her wacky sense of humor.

Rebroadcast of the long running radio program, "The Ave Maria Hour", a presentation of the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement. www.AtonementFriars.org
Matthew Rossi of the well known Orsini family was a knight of extraordinary piety and virtue. Once as St. Francis of Assisi was traveling through Rome, Matthew invited Francis to visit his palace in Rome and teach him how to save his soul. St. Francis’ preaching on the vanity of the world was so impressive that Mathew fell at his feet and humbly begged for admission to the Third Order to live out his life in penance. Many noble men and women soon followed his example.
During a later visit to Rome, St. Francis held Matthew’s young son, John Cajetan and declared: “This boy will at some future time be a religious not in garb but in sentiment; he will be a mighty ruler and great protector of our order.” The prophecy was fulfilled. John Cajetan became a priest, cardinal protector of the Franciscan Order and in the year of 1277 he ascended the papal throne as Nicholas III.

In this episode of EGUA - Marketplace we discuss GUAMUA KASA, public speech/speaking, as an instrument to organize economic activity for the benefit of our Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) community. Our GUAMU KASA services are free. When we give presentations in different cities we do not charge an admission's fee for attendees to our events nor do we charge a speaker's fee. Moreover, we endeavor to provide a free copy of one of our soft-cover books to everyone who attends our events. Over the past 12 months we have given away over 350 free copies of our soft-cover books to the Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) community.
GUAMU KASA, public speaking, can be an effective tool to transfer knowledge, stimulate economic activity, reinforce the values of our culture and empower our community when approached in a culturally grounded manner.
