Did you know that the Apollo 11 Lunar Mission used more energy in the first two miles after lift-off than the following 500,000 miles of travel?
The lift-off, taking the first step...getting started is the biggest challenge facing parents of college-bound students. Why? Because-
- It's always easier to wait for another day...a day that doesn't show up on the calendar to tell you it's time to start
- Parents don't know what to do or when to do it...why would they?
- Parents want to believe the high school will take care of it for them...just easier if it were to work that way, but it doesn't
All reasons that lead down the beaten path of waiting, hoping, and wishing; often resulting in undesired outcomes such as missing out on preferred acceptances, overpaying for college, not playing college sports, not graduating college on time, and much more. It's all too predictable.
We don't subscribe to that theory. Rather, we believe in taking a systematic approach to getting college right. It starts with taking the first step, which is building a college list; then taking the next step, which is creating a personal marketing package; and it goes on from there with each step taken in prescribed order.
No matter the circumstances, getting college right is far from being automatic; and getting it wrong is far from being an accident.
Taking ownership of your situation, getting started, and being knowledgeable are all choices of yours. But it's much harder work to get involved, plan ahead, and learn how to create your own advantages. That's why it's the biggest challenge facing parents of college-bound students.
You notice we're not directing this towards the students. Why not? Because college success often falls on the shoulders of the parents. Enough said!
College success is predictable. It does not arrive by accident.
