1. Does the college support how I learn best?
2. Does the school value what I can contribute?
3. Does the college challenge me to grow?
4. Does the campus community feel like a new home?
THREE REASONS NOT TO CHOOSE A SCHOOL
1. It is considered the most prestigious.
2. All my friends are going there.
3. It has the cheapest price tag.
"We're taking the best parts of financial aid night, the traditional college fair, school success workshops, and high-energy motivational seminars and mashing it all up with audience involvement, experiential learning, technological magic, and plenty of theatrical flair," Kaplan says. "The result is a next-generation educational event: The world's most dynamic 'one-stop shop' for all of your tuition funding, college admissions, school success, and personal growth needs."
First, students and parents participate in an interactive group learning session with Kaplan, author, syndicated columnist, and speaker who has helped tens of thousands of families discover and afford their dream colleges, get admitted, succeed in school, pursue their passions, and save more than half a billion dollars in the process.
Then, each participant gets to put this new knowledge into immediate action by exploring our live "college city" -- up to 100,000 square feet of essential education-related opportunities and resources organized into "streets" like "Scholarship Boulevard," "Financial Aid Avenue," "College Search Road," "Test Prep Circle," and "Study Abroad Square."
