Host Julie Lythcott-Haims asks expert Amy Young about what high school juniors should be thinking about at the beginning of 2016. Amy is the director of college counseling at Avenues, an independent school in New York City. She says if a high school junior is feeling overwhelmed or uninterested, a good first step is to visit a college campus-- it really helps a student get excited about the process.
Julie and Amy answer listener questions from a parent about the value pre-college summer programs for high school students. And an AP History teacher wonders if it's a red flag to college admissions officers when AP History students do not take the AP exam.
