It’s not that college-bound high school students and their parents don’t ask questions about college. They do. Tons of them. But they’re not the right questions. The most-commonly asked questions are the least helpful when it comes to finding the best college fit, and they may actually be counter-productive. Questions like, “Where are my friends going to college?” “Where did mom and dad go to college?” “What colleges am I most familiar with?” “How quickly can I get this decision over with?” You better questions. Throughout the college planning process, your best tool as a college-bound high school student or parent is dialogue. Open, healthy, inclusive, engaging, and at times messy and frustrating, dialogue. You the student and you the parent(s) are the key players in this. Building the University of You: 10 Critical Questions to Find the Best College Fit helps you find the best college fit. Author and independent college planner Thomas Kleese uses the very questions in this book when he helps families around the country through the college planning process. Use this book to give yourself and your family permission to create a journey, not just pick a college. The 10 questions in this book are designed to help you create something unique called the University of You. If you are hoping to build something that looks exactly like Stanford or Williams or Ohio State, you’re missing the point. The University of You is whatever you want it to be, but don’t view it as a smorgasbord of all the things you know and love. This will be a new dish in which all the elements complement and play off each other so wonderfully that it tastes like something entirely new. You as the high school student and your family will use these questions as tools to determine exactly what it is that will make the perfect learning environment for you. And in all areas we will aim for a custom fit versus off-the-shelf stock items. Now...It’s time for question #1.
