Roundup of Helpful Posts for the Spring Season

Spring is in the air!  As we approach March, winter may still have something left for us, but we know it won’t last long.  Students and parents also know that there are still a few months left to the school year, but the end is beginning to be in sight.  Whether your student is a high school student looking ahead to college or a college student looking toward career or graduate school, or even a college student wondering about the next phase of college, March is a good time to look ahead.

Each year at this time we do a roundup of posts we feel might be most helpful during this “looking ahead” time of year.  Be sure to look at our March 2011 and March 2010 roundups.  Here are some posts to consider now as you and your student look toward the future and your student’s next phase (and your next phase of college parenting as well).
