Host Julie Lythcott-Haims and Getting In expert Steve LeMenager hear an update from Getting In senior Jordana Meyer and they answer listener questions.
Steve is the president of Edvice, a college counseling firm. He was previously a director of admissions at Princeton University.
Listener questions in this episode include one from a mother in Seattle whose son received several acceptance letters, and wonders if the financial aid packages can be negotiated because her husband was recently laid off. A mother in Connecticut asks for advice after her daughter has been rejected everywhere and accepted to a school she would never consider attending. And a California eleventh grader studying abroad in the Czech Republic wonders if her lack of traditional junior year coursework will affect her admissions chances.
