Doug and Dan have helped hundreds of students and parents navigate the college process successfully. Debunking the Myths of the College Application Process Doug and Dan will address the common myths of getting into college with a general overview of the process including when the process should begin, how important are grades and standardized test scores, and is it possible to afford college without going into debt, among many other topics. Choosing a College that Fits Tuesday, April 14 from 6:30 to 7:30 pm Does everyone dream of going to Harvard? Not really. There are over 4,000 colleges and universities in the United State alone.
