If the target college for your kids is Ivy League, medical or some other elite school, it will take more than perfect grades and high test scores to be noticed in the admissions process. Numbers are comforting, but there’s an artistry to high school course selection, essay writing, who to get recommendations from and interview performance that has helped 90% of Dr. Shirag Shemmassian’s clients get into at least one of their top 3 college choices.
In this episode, we talk to Dr. Shemmassian about the services he offers, what things help an applicant stand out in a sea of high performers, and the importance of mental preparation in achieving education goals. We also talk about the important role of parents in the process, including ways to let go of preconceived notions of what leads to a successful career and how to embrace the reality that every student can create a compelling future in their area of interest.
