Countdown to College


Countdown to College College admissions season is upon us and we'll talk about high school students' college visits and making the college choice. We'll meet one student who spent her summer visiting potential colleges and we'll find out how that helped shape her decisions about where to apply. Then we'll talk about the sometimes difficult process of saying goodbye to the college freshman who is off on their own for the first time. We'll hear first hand accounts from both parents and students, including a new college freshman and her mom who will talk about what they're going through right now. Guests Lee Bierer - Countdown to College Columnist, The Charlotte Observer David Mabe - Admissions Office at Davidson College
