Summer is winding down, which means that college application stress is winding up. High school seniors and their families face unique challenges this second COVID-touched school year, so I wanted to share my perspective. In Episode 242, I offer an inside look at what it was like to support two very different kids through the college application process (the youngest of whom is days away from starting as a college freshman). Listen now for tips, perspective, and, hopefully, comfort, as you embark on this sometimes-maddening, exciting ride with your almost-flown kid.
