How to Build a Great College List: Student & Families Edition

A 2-day mini-course with Ethan and Special Guest Dr. Steven Antonoff
Wednesday, May 17th & 24th
4-6:00pm Pacific Time (7-9:00pm Eastern)

The Mission: Identifying colleges where you will both get in and fit in.
The Method: Four hours of expert list-building advice.

Join me and Dr. Antonoff to discuss finding colleges that meet your academic goals, social goals, financial goals, and more.

This comprehensive, three-hour pay-what-you-can mini-course—intended for 9th to 11th graders and their families—will guide you through pretty much all the things you need to know when it comes to finding great college options.

We cover:

  • The Building Blocks of College List Creation: knowledge of yourself, what you are looking for in a college, and awareness of college options
  • How student and parent attitudes can help (or hinder) finding good college options
  • Step-by-step approaches to articulating what you are really looking for in a college
  • Methods of going beyond the words (small, isolated, value, Greek, major, etc.) to hone in on what matters most in finding college choices where you will thrive
  • How to determine whether a particular college will be welcoming to you
  • How to gauge how generous colleges will be when it comes to financial aid
  • Ways to research colleges. How to separate the signal from the noise
  • Admission office secrets — uncovering what goes on behind closed doors
  • How to be sure you have enough backup schools on your list

You’ll leave with a list of insights into yourself that you can share with your counselor after the mini-course.

Note: We record the live sessions. Recordings will be uploaded and located inside the course.

Ethan, you’re an amazing teacher. Thanks to you I’ve been able to say what I’ve wanted to say about my life and show how it has impacted me. That’s something that I’ve struggled to do in the past. From the bottom of my heart, I just want to say thank you!

Miles P. / Student

I’d like to thank you for letting me join the UC Application course you gave in the beginning of this year for free. There’s no way I could have afforded it but you made it possible. Finally, I’ve committed to go to Stanford and I’m feeling very thankful for the opportunity you gave me. Thank you and keep it up!
