The college admissions process is constantly evolving, and it can be extremely challenging for parents and students to navigate admissions on their own. The Bay Area can be particularly competitive for high school students, as evidenced by the many stressed out teens and parents Blue Stars has encountered! This is why Dr. Amy Morgenstern is making it her mission to inform parents on how to succeed in college admissions while staying calm, strengthening family bonds, and contributing to their child’s personal growth.
