Post for the Parents

For the last few years, I have opened up a post specifically to answer questions from parents, and I thought I would revisit this theme earlier this year. While I love working with and answering questions from students, parents seem to be put in the background at times during the college admissions process. You hear the term "helicopter parent" and hear horror stories about over-zealous moms and dads, but for the most part they are just trying to help their children navigate the often confusing process of college admissions.

A number of colleges try to connect with parents, through email blasts, mailings or other connections, trying to give the family more information, including UGA. Our office wants to educate parents about the UGA admissions process, and dispel any myths that float around the HS communities and neighborhoods. Hopefully, a fair number of parents of rising seniors have seen the recent email we sent out to students letting them know about the blog, but please spread the word about this post.

So here is your chance, parents. What questions do you have that you are dying to ask? Feel free to post whatever questions you would like through the comment option, and I will try to respond as quickly as possible. Fire Away!
