NOTE: That’s true in these situations too:

Avoid “Look!” and you’ll escape the inevitable wrong impression that would have resulted.

Parents and high school students know that they need to be very busy now applying for college admission for the 2012-13 academic year. In fact, some may have been active in the process already.
Want some expert advice on the process? Then listen to my entire interview with Dr. Jean DuPree, College Counselor at Lakeview Academy in Gainesville, Georgia. I hosted her in “The Communication Corner,” my weekly interview program on WBCX, 89.1 FM. As usual, I welcomed the vital assistance of co-host Kristina Rhoades.
During our lively conversation, Dr. Dupree talked about:
–Why going to college might not be the best decision for some students
–Advantages/disadvantages of small colleges and large universities
–Whether extracurricular activities in high school impact college admission
–Annual cost of college, and getting financial aid
–How students benefit from work/study arrangements
–What parents should do during a campus visit
–Selecting a roommate
–Other relevant topics
