College Transfer

I love the last podcast you guys posted on January 18th, 2022 . My new year resolution is to have better time management! This information was very helpful. Gave me a better understanding as to what you guys expect more than just a GPA! Which is great because I see that you guys want to us to challenge our self to be best of ourselves ! Also it would be gladly appreciated if you guys had any new information for college transfers or is it any different than to those that come straight from high school? Thank you guys for your podcast I will be on look out for the new ones !

College admissions information from a balanced and positive perspective

Rick Clark and his team are both informative and encouraging. My favorite episodes come from December 2020. It should be mandatory listening for harried juniors and seniors (and their parents!). It brings perspective, wisdom and hope, which is much needed in the overwhelm and pressures of the college admissions process. Thank you.

Suggestion for a future episode: Comparing double majors, double degrees, 4+1 masters, 3+2 engineering options, minors, and weighing that all against the standard bachelors + masters degrees. How are these degrees viewed from an industry standpoint? What are the pros and cons of each option?
