ED or EA or RD? Oh My!: A College Admissions Primer with Jill Margaret Shulman

Tuesday, October 22, 2019

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

College admissions doesn't have to be scandalous or crazy-making! Whether your child is (or you are) a high school senior applying right now or a sophomore or junior just getting started, Jill Shulman will clarify options, dispel myths, answer your burning questions, and send you on a saner, less stressful path.

About the speaker:
Jill Margaret Shulman, author of College Admissions Cracked: Saving Your Kid (and Yourself) from the Madness, is a college admissions coach, college writing instructor, essayist, author, and empathetic parent. She has evaluated applications at Amherst College and Williams College for nearly a decade and has taught at the New School and the City University of New York. Shulman has written for the New York Times, Family Circle, Parents, Good Housekeeping, and O, The Oprah Magazine, among other publications. She lives in Amherst, Massachusetts, with her husband (and two children, whenever they are home from college).
