Reviews for College Application Videos
Jennifer T. Mascolo, PsyD, NCSP/ Nationally Certified School Psychologist
Dr. Avery's "Operation Application" video bootcamp contains advice for parents, stakeholders, and student applicants who are completing the Common Application. It starts with a step-by-step walkthrough that begins with teaching students how to set up their account and continues with helping them to navigate all of the elements of the common application. While there are several resources that teach "tips and tricks" for completing college applications, Dr. Avery's video is unique in that while it certainly offers practical suggestions, it emphasizes the idea that the true value of one's college application lies within its ability to celebrate and appropriately showcase one's individuality. In a world that can be filled with constant competition and comparison, Dr. Avery's video is refreshing as it gives students absolute permission to explore and embrace their own voice in a manner that allows their authenticity to shine through.

Dr. Avery shares so much insider knowledge about the college admissions process in these videos. I highly recommend them to any high school senior applying to selective colleges.
