9 College Admission Myths Revealed
College Planning Expert Ron Caruthers has published a new free video that reveals the top admissions myths most parents and guidance counselors believe that actually hurt their children's chances of getting into college.

"As college gets harder and harder to get into, most families have no clue about how the system really works, and they waste their time with things that don't matter," Ron states. "I've published this video to help parents learn the truth".
The video reveals:
-How AP classes can be a waste of time and actually hurt a student's chances of getting into college.
-Why applying to a junior college first to 'save money' can actually cost more in the long run.
-Why Early Decision (which every other counselor raves over) causes families to pay more for school and does NOT improve their chances of getting in.
-And much, much more.
In the 25 minute video, Ron Caruthers’ colorful stories and examples make learning how to afford college a breeze – whether you’re a family earning a six figure income or a middle class family challenged to keep up with your mortgage and credit card bills each month.

One mom stated after watching the video "Ok so I watched your video and loved it! My husband actually watched it with me. I loved how you pointed out the junior college myth about saving some money however you may “lose” your straight A over achiever kid in the meantime! You also made me concerned about Bailey’s AP classes that she took last year and struggled and the two that she has this year. Thank you again!" Lisa Pietila, Ramona, California
Mr. Caruthers is also available for media interviews to expand on any of these subjects or themes as well.
