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.

A masterclass about preparing for college

I'm a podcast nerd... I'm also a parent who is overwhelmed by the whole college admissions process / picking schools / financial aid etc. - so I downloaded several different episodes of podcasts about the college admissions process and this is by far the most insightful - Mark & Anika discuss it in an accessible and entertaining way and the information I've gotten from each episode has been invaluable (I've had to pull over while driving to jot down stuff like the good college comparison sites Mark mentions.) One tip is to just download all the episodes, you'll get something from each of them - the episode titles aren't so much the overarching theme of each whole episode, but are just one topic that they touch on. Thank you Mark & Anika - you've been a huge help to me and my junior / soon to be college student!

The best college podcast out there!

I have listened to every episode and eagerly look forward to each new one. No other college admissions podcast is more informative and well formatted. When other parents say they are overwhelmed by the college admissions process I direct them here. This is the class we need to understand the process and make decisions with confidence. Thank you!
