To the Parents of Northwood Seniors:

Greetings from Lake Placid, where Northwood just completed Parents’ Weekend. Thanks to all of you who attended my session on the college admissions process. As promised, here is a link to my presentation.

Tomorrow morning, all of the seniors will make great progress on their Common Applications when we dedicate the morning to the important work of the college application. Tomorrow afternoon, Northwood seniors will be ahead of their peers at other schools because of that work. Here’s a sample of what we will accomplish: Senior Day Schedule; SeniorDay2013Packet; SeniorDayPresentation.

Here are a few updates I want to share:

  • Here is  some outstanding advice for parents on the college admission process (from Middlebury College).
  • Finally, it is very important for students to show all applications (and supplements) to their counselors before submitting them.

Thanks to all of the parents who stopped in to see me during Parents’ Weekend. I enjoyed meeting you. For those of you who couldn’t make it: I hope to see you soon, and please keep in touch.

John Spear
Director of College Counseling
