“We know parents have many concerns about the choices they will make with their teens,” Editor in Chief/ Publisher Susan Borison says. “With this program, we’ve lined up top experts who will get the right information in the hands of parents.”
Your Teen Magazine offers many print and online high school and college resources for parents. For example, “Beginning the College Search Process,” covers:
- Resources with data on over 2,000 of the 4-year colleges and universities in the United States
- College selection factors
- Faculty trends
- Merit aid
Michelle Kretzschmar, founder of DIYCollegeRankings.com, outlines methods and resources.
“Once you have the data in a spreadsheet, you can look for colleges where your student will be in the top quarter of applicants, so they’ll have a better chance of getting merit aid,” she explains. (Note that not every college offers merit aid. In fact, the most exclusive colleges typically don’t provide any.)
