New College Application

Bev Taylor, Founder of Ivy Coach, has been quoted (well, somewhat misquoted this time!) on the pages of “The Daily Pennsylvanian,” the newspaper of the University of Pennsylvania.

Too Many College Applications

Is there a such thing as submitting too many college applications, you ask? There was an article a couple of days ago in “The New York Times” entitled “Applications by the Dozen, as Anxious Seniors Hedge College Bets” written by Ariel Kaminer that we figured we’d bring to the attention …
