    The #1 Fallacy of Parents Regarding College Admissions

    The #1 Fallacy of Parents Regarding College Admissions

    Fallacy- an error in reasoning that renders an argument logically invalid.

    There are many fallacies of parents regarding the College Admission & Application process. Your successful outcome may very well hinge on your understanding of these fallacies.

    Here is the # 1 most common fallacy of parents and students regarding college admissions- 
    • College admissions is a de-selection process made easy by the students and permitted by the parents.
    It is a de-selection process. You may not want to believe it, but it's true. College admission counselors look to reject the application within 5 minutes of opening it. Our job is to keep them from doing that. However, students make it very easy to reject. How? 
    • Students wait too long to begin the applications.
    • Students tend to rush through the application.
    • Most student's essays are poorly conceived, poorly written, and of little interest.
    • Activities are left incomplete.
    • Supplemental questions are rushed through. 
    Applications are being submitted incomplete and easy to detect in less than 5 minutes. Parents allow it by not exercising appropriate oversight.

    Mom and Dad, we are applying for college
    admissions and scholarships. Do not assume your child will satisfy the need without your oversight and input. 

    We're not talking about buying a color television here, rather, we're talking about your child's college future along with your family finance.

    We discuss this and much more on our educational webinars. Join us on my next webinar coming up shortly.

    College Admissions, This is the Biggest Mistake Made

    College Admissions, This is the Biggest Mistake Made

    College is not a prize to be won, rather, it is a match to be made.

    It's "College Admissions" season.

    Welcome to our College Admission & Application summer series where we will focus on key topics for winning admissions and earning scholarships. 

    We begin by identifying the biggest mistake made by the student's and their families-
    • Families proceed with submitting applications without having a plan, strategy, or qualified college list from which to work, leaving too much to random chance.
    Families too often leave college applications to a random selection based on name, rankings, family, or Naviance. That's not how a match is made. 

    You make a match by-
    • Working from a college list matching the student's qualifications, interests, and needs.
    • Visiting the right colleges, meeting the key people.
    • Evaluating colleges for a realistic opportunity.
    • Having a plan to submit "early" applications for winning preferred acceptances.
    • Forming a strategy that results in having quality options and leverage.   
    • Choosing a college that delivers on all stated goals of the family.
    Mom and Dad, these are not things you can just wait for your child, school counselor, or travel team coach to do for you. Getting this right is your job, not anyone else.

    We're not talking about buying a color television here, rather, we're talking about your child's college and future.  

    We discuss this and much more on our educational webinars. Join us on my next webinar coming up shortly.

    Knock Down That Wall

    Knock Down That Wall

    The secret to playing college sports is to connect with coaches in a meaningful way beyond casual emails and camp invites.

    You have a talented athlete who aspires to play college sports. Their #1 challenge and your #1 frustration will be in trying to connect with college coaches. In fact, athlete-families see a 50' high concrete wall as a barrier to the coach. If you don't knock that down, then it will crush your dreams. 

    Why does it exist in the first place? There are three reasons- 
    1. Athletes are intimidated by college coaches, so they shy away from them.
    2. Parents don't know how to go about it.
    3. College coaches are more elusive than ever.
    Knocking down the wall requires you to overcome each of those reasons.

    Athletes need to realize that their best path to becoming a college athlete is to build meaningful relationships with college coaches. They must be willing to be diligent in their outreach.

    Parents need to realize that their role as a facilitator is enhanced by having knowledge of the process, not sitting on the sidelines and watching. They must be willing to learn.

    Coaches are not going to change their approach. So athlete-families need to be proactively involved and engaged with a strategic plan. Athletes need to build value in themselves to substantiate further interest of a coach.

    The Key to Meeting College Coaches

    The Key to Meeting College Coaches

    The key to turning a 15-minute coach meeting into 60 minutes is having the right questions to ask.

    You have plans to visit colleges and meet coaches. What do you want out of the meetings? To build value in the athlete? To find out if there is a real opportunity? To learn exactly what the coach's situation is? Yes, all of it...of course! 

    How will YOU do that? We do that by asking all the right questions. It builds value. It sheds light on the opportunity. And it provides valuable insight into the coach's situation. 

    We have a script of
    50 Questions to Ask a College Coach. Not that your child will ask all the questions, but you can pick and choose the ones which apply best. Here are a few of the most important questions that you must ask-

    - What is your 5-year plan?
    - How many scholarships do you have available for the team?
    - How many do you have available for my recruiting class?
    - For which positions do you plan to offer a scholarship?

    - What can I do to qualify for a scholarship?
    - What is your timeline for making offers?
    - How can you help me with admissions and costs?

     
    Without having the right questions to ask will likely bring an abrupt end to the meeting. You will leave without having built enough value to substantiate further attention of the coach.

    Having the right questions to ask will draw the coach's interest, demonstrating good organization of the athlete, while gaining important insight into the specific situation of the coach.

    The Single Most Important Thing You Can Do...

    The Single Most Important Thing You Can Do...

    College recruiting made-simple runs through well-planned evaluations.

    What's an "evaluation"? Evaluations are by coaches who are known by the athlete in advance of an event; who will specifically evaluate the athlete and provide a private feedback session within 72 hours of the event.

    Well-planned evaluations will increase the athlete's likelihood of being recruited by 20 times! And they work for all NCAA sports and all levels of play. 

    Well-planned evaluations have replaced random-exposure. Planning for evaluations requires an advanced effort to connect with a coach in a meaningful way, thus motivating the coach to do an evaluation. Pursuing random exposure is much simpler, though far less effective.

    Planned evaluations work. Chasing exposure does not. Planning evaluations is the # 1 thing you can do to boost your recruiting opportunity.
