College Planning Seminar
Thursday, May 25th, 6 pm
Is college looming in yours or your child’s very near future? Are you confused about where to begin to look or what to do next? Have we got the opportunity for you! Craig Plummer will be running a seminar on just this topic on Thursday, May 25, 6 pm at the Brookline Safety Complex Meeting Room, 3 Post Office Dr., Brookline.
Craig is a former High School guidance counselor who now runs his own College Consulting firm called, The College Connection. He will give an overview of the entire college process from beginning to end including: “How do I start looking for colleges?” “Can I get in?” “How do I fill out this application?” “Where do I begin with this essay thing?” and “How will I pay for all of this?”
These topics and other questions that you might have will be addressed in an interactive session with light snacks provided.
