Parents! Is your high schooler going to college? Is this the first time since your own college days that you've dealt with the admissions process? Do you have so many questions you don't know where to start?

Do you you really want to help your kid but you're just not sure how? 

Join Dr. Yo, J.D. Rothman (aka, the Neurotic Parent), and a panel of three "first time" parents as they help you make sense of the four-year labyrinth of unnerving demands placed on your teen(s) known as the college admissions process. 

Topics include:

  • what mom and dad need to know to best help their kid(s)
  • organizing their child's college admissions calendar
  • the most important admissions criteria
  • which tests to take and when
  • putting together a reasonable list of colleges
  • applications and recommendations
  • college visits
  • the convoluted early decision options
  • stories that will make you laugh and cry at the same time

As always, we invite listeners to phone in with their questions and concerns, join the chat room, tweet to #preptalk, or post them here in advance.

For more parent and teen tips, tricks, and strategies for playing the college admissions game, join Dr. Yo on Wednesday, March 12, 2014, 7:00-8:30PM ET, at William Hall High School in West Hartford: “College Admissions Secrets for Parents and Teens,” Tickets
