Event Description:
 
How can high school students navigate the chaos of the college admissions process? How do you choose the right college? What’s the secret to getting in? How do families survive? 
 
Get answers to these questions and more from Dave Marcus, the author of Acceptance, a book with the inside story on how to get into college.  Dave, a Brown and Harvard graduate who mentions that “a college in Florida changed his life”, writes about higher education for the New York Times and US News & World Report.  He won the Pulitzer Prize as a foreign correspondent.  Dave has spoken about the college admissions process at schools, churches, synagogues, and appeared on the Today Show and NPR’s “Morning Edition”.
 
For students and families, the college admissions process is high stakes, complex, and anxiety-provoking; often too driven by the aspiration for the most prestigious outcome.  Dave humanizes the process, focusing on each applicant finding the right “fit” within a context of self-discovery.  
 
While parents may aspire for their children to attend a top-ranked college, they might also be mindful that the best “fit” for each child is the healthiest approach.  Dave’s talk can help parents and their children improve their dialogue about college admissions and choice.
 
This event is sponsored by the Brown Club of Miami in collaboration with All-Ivy+.
