Phani’s son was in the 8th grade when they joined our college consulting program. His son was bright and doing well academically, though he had no exposure to any fields/majors. Outside of sports, he also hadn’t participated in any academic or extracurricular activities. Given that Phani didn’t have any experience with how college admissions in the US worked, his family sought guidance on how to help his son identify his interests and further develop his passion to stand out to top colleges.
