If you’re a senior or a parent of a senior, we would highly recommend this film about the stressful process that millions of people are going through at this time: “In 500 Words or Less”. The full movie is available for viewing on youtube and you can also purchase the DVD online.
It helps to feel that you’re not alone and that other parents and students are going through a similar process.
If you’re not a senior, then you can still watch the film to get a feeling for the college application process. One lesson from the film is that it’s better to start the process earlier rather than later.
