You’ve earned great grades and scored well on your SAT and/or ACT. Is that enough? Well…… Yes and No! According to Socrates, “the unexamined life is not worth living.” He meant that without self-discovery, self-reflection and self-assessment, how can you envision the perfect future; and thus plan for it. There are more than 4000 4-year colleges in the US. However, many students think that there are only a couple dozen great colleges. This is the “grand misconception” about colleges, and leads to so many top tier students apply predominantly to the same schools. The little secret here is that there are hundreds of fine colleges in the US, and scores of colleges and universities on par with the Ivies in regards to curriculum, rigor and faculty. In fact, they are prestigious, but without the Ivy League prestige. It would be a missed opportunity for you to disregard them.
