As many know, getting a child admitted into a private school can be a highly competitive and pressure-filled process.
NY PEAS is a private education consultancy that provides knowledge and expertise so families can navigate the New York City process.
We asked Jennifer Brozost and Vimmi Shroff, co-founders of NY PEAS (above), to share a couple of tips so NewsWhistle parents and their kids can make the grade.
NW: What are five ways to scare off an admissions director or counselor?
1) Possess a sense of entitlement;
2) Focus on applying to only the “top tier” schools;
3) Have a lack of interest in understanding the core philosophy of each school you plan to apply;
4) Not keeping an open mind about your child’s strengths and weaknesses; and
5) Misusing connections.
NW: And for parents and children looking for more answers, what are five books/publications that you recommend?
