    Deadlines, how to not fall victim to a missed deadline

    Deadlines, how to not fall victim to a missed deadline

    This week I’m sharing the deadlines I’ve identified for the newly admitted, continuing, & graduating college student. Mom, this is not your list. For the newl student you will be pretty involved but as your student progresses through college and matures, it becomes less you through your coaching. By the time you get to graduation you will be at a point to simply relish in your student’s success.

Very Informative

Lesa clearly knows her stuff and shares valuable and practical information for anyone preparing to send a child to college. Would appreciate it if she spoke directly to her audience of “parents” rather than “moms” as she so often does, but that’s a minor critique. The podcast is still worthy of 5 stars.
