Landesberg explains that topics covered in the workshop include learning what counts in college admissions, discovering the best fit college, determining if the SAT or ACT is best for you, tricks for test prep, tips for the college essay, and a financial aid and scholarship overview. “This workshop is designed so that the student can be in the know throughout high school—and completely prepared when it’s time to take the next step.”
For more than 15 years Debra Landesberg, M.S., has helped students and their families navigate the often confusing steps of the college application process coupled with the challenges of dealing with financial aid and scholarships. Time, thought, and planning are necessary to get it right so the student can find their best fit college.
