HOT, HIP & HAPPENING

Some Help in Selecting a First College

December 13, 1990|RON GASBARRO | Associated Press

Most adults remember the end of their first year of college as the year in which many of their friends had transferred to other schools for financial, academic or personal reasons.

The video, "Getting Through the College Admission Process," explains that many students in their senior high school year get caught up in the peer pressure to select a hot, popular school.

By the end of the first term, the inappropriateness of the school for some students can become apparent.

This 60-minute video should be seen and discussed by juniors and seniors who are thinking about university life. For example, if you can get into Harvard, does that mean the school is suitable for you? At an interview, should you talk about yourself or let the interviewer do all the talking? The tape gives good tips that you can use even after college.

The tape is $39.95--get seven kids together, split the cost and make an evening of viewing it. Order through College Preparatory Service, in Pittsford, N.Y., at (800) 888-7288.
