Everything I need to know and then some!

While you might find the length of these shows a little intimidating, let me assure you that every minute is dense with knowledge, encouragement and valuable perspectives for anyone seeking guidance in the college search process. What sets this show apart from any others I have heard, is the sincerity and authenticity of the hosts. I highly, highly recommend! Five stars are not enough! Thank you, Mark and Anika, for investing your time and sharing your knowledge!!

A college admissions deep dive...

If you are the type of parent that likes to know everything possible about college admissions - this is the podcast for you. Mark and Anika explore many topics at length in a very easy to understand/ likable way . The interviews Mark conducts with admissions professionals also provide very valuable information. If you are over 40 college admissions is TOTALLY different than it was when you went to college, but no worries... Mark and Anika have your back.

Love so much!

Absolutely love this podcast! My only (admittedly petty) complaint is how the host always leaves the “s” off Johns Hopkins when he speaks and writes. As an alum, it irks me more than it should.
