While most college manuals are written to parents, this unique college prep planner has been designed specifically for the student. It imparts all the student needs to know in a visually appealing and simplified way and serves as the student’s:

• Planner

• 411 to Everthing High School

• Admissions Counselor

• Guide for Planning Out High School

• Resume Builder

• Record Keeper

• Checklist for Everything from Admissions to Moving to Colege

• Career Counselor

This product will be your lifeboat as you navigate the rip tides and undertows of high school and college planning.

Not only does it have a personality test that will help your student discover careers that are ideal for his unique personality, it gives guidance for creating a transcript, writing a resume, and keeping records for admissions and scholarship applications. It also provides tips and guidance for getting scholarships and reveals how to minimize the expense of college, making it much more affordable or even free.

It is exactly what your student needs to take ownership of his journey from high school to college.

My husband, Jeff Fulbright, a practicing lawyer, wrote My Roadmap to College and Career with me. And we are so excited to share all of our insider info with you.
