My favorite College Podcast

I subscribe to about 10 college podcasts. This is my absolute favorite! Allen is a wealth of information and offers practical college admission advice on every episode. Each episode seems to be pertinent to whatever my kids are experiencing at that time. Allen and his co-host are concise with up to date knowledge and suggestions we greatly appreciate. Highly recommend.

Great topics!

I always recommend PrepScholar to my students! Just discovered your podcast and will certainly be sharing it with my high schoolers. :D

Advice you won't find at school!

The advice here is so great because it comes from direct experience. The stories are interesting and incredibly helpful. I wish I had this two years ago as a freshman -- I would have listened to each episode twice and make a number of different choices in high school!
