Q&A with College Admissions Representatives: Tips for parents from colleges admissions staff: the dos and don'ts of the application process

Panel of college representatives, hosted by Rachel Coates, Educoates,

The college search and admission process is a life-changing event for your child and often for the whole family. Parent involvement is essential. But what is your role as parent and what is solely your child's responsibility? How can you work successfully with your child for an outcome that makes you both happy?  

Come and hear from the experts, the colleges themselves. College admissions representatives share their wisdom and tips for parents on what to do and what not to do.  These are the people at colleges that read the applications submitted by Brooklyn Tech students. The panel is drawn from a cross-section of institutions: SUNY Binghamton, University of Maryland, Franklin and Marshall, Syracuse University and University College, Dublin.


Rachel Coates, an independent college admissions consultant, will moderate the panel.  

College Financing

Kal Chany, Founder, Campus Consultants,

Kalman A. Chany, nationally recognized college financing expert and author, will present an overview of financial aid and other college funding options.  The impact of the recent tax law changes on educational financing will also be covered. Because early planning is often the key to maximizing aid opportunities and reducing college costs, this workshop is best suited for parents of 9th to 11th graders.
