Why your kid rocks!

Posted on June 24, 2013 at 11:21 PM
I often talk to worried parents who are concerned about how their kids will measure up in the college admissions process. Then I meet their kids. I've never met a teen who did not absolutely rock.
 
In the frenzy to get kids ready for college and into competitive colleges, sometimes we lose sight of how awesome they are. Although SAT scores, high school grade point average and activity resumes are very important, there are other areas where students also shine. Areas like sense of humor, respectfulness, integrity, honesty, genuineness, creativity, generosity, willingness to volunteer, work habits and teamwork are just a few that stand out. One particular trait that seems to define this generation is their depth of caring and commitment to solving societal challenges.
 
Much is written about what's wrong with kids today. They are held up against a demanding microscope of metrics that cause anxiety and impact how well they will compete. Although I meet students with a variety of academic metrics levels, their attitudes and values are consistently impressive. And those values can become metrics in their own way as part of essays and interview responses.
 
Parents and students need not worry about academic metrics if they reflect the best work of the student. It is also not the end of the world if the student may not have taken all the right courses or if the family does not have the ability to pay. There is a college for everyone of every academic background and economic background who can benefit. The key is to match the  individual needs and dreams of the student with a college and program that will get her where she was meant to be.
