Thanks to the wonderful and knowledgeable staff of College Bound Consulting for presenting the "Road to College" event at ACE Tutoring. The families expressed their appreciation of the information shared and will have great food for thought as they research college options. For me, the highlight of the evening was hearing one student comment, "I wasn't sure where I'd fit into at college. All my friends want to go to UCSD or something like that." After hearing the unconventional way that I selected my private women's liberal arts college, the student beamed and said, "Wow, maybe I can find a good fit too!" Though it's fun to ponder how my life and career could have turned out if I'd accepted a scholarship to one of the large institutions such as Carnegie Mellon University, I can truthfully say that I have zero regrets about the college I chose as my home for four years as I learned to be a good person as well as a competent business woman.
