What Do I Do Now?!

At this point, just about everyone has started the school year. If you are starting your senior year, you have probably visited some colleges, taken some tours, sat in on some information sessions, and even spoken with some current students.

The Best of Both Worlds

Stop me if you’ve been to one of our info sessions and heard one of our counselors say something like this before: “Boston is the world’s best college town.”  While this may be our opinion, it’s also on the internet!
