PSP College 101 with Deena Maerowitz @ 7:00pm

Please join Park Slope Parents and Education Consultant, Deena Maerowitz, for PSP College 101, on Wednesday, March 6th, at 7:00pm.
The college search can be stressful. It doesn't have to be. Deena will talk about how to find the right fit for your child, and how to look beyond the most
popular colleges.

Families will come away with new ways to think about this process. The information presented will be most useful to parents and students in 9th - 12th grades, but all families are welcome. 

Deena will discuss:

• What to be thinking about each year of high school, and how to separate fact from fiction.
• What questions should parents and students consider when building a balanced college list?
• What does test optional mean?
• What are the differences, advantages, and disadvantages of Early Action, Early Decision, Regular Decision and Rolling Decision?

There will be plenty of time for Q and A and follow up resources will be sent to all registrants.

Cost:     $25.00/members & $35.00/non-members**
