We live in a confusing world. Most  parents and high school students agree  that a university education is essential to having a successful career. As a result, parents and students are feeling enormous pressure to decide  on:

– what university program to take
– where to attend university
– what high school courses to take  to prepare them for university
– what to do to keep the grades competitive
– what volunteer activities to participate in
– what career to plan for
– what to do to win scholarships
– how  to learn about career options and opportunities
– whether to take the SAT in Canada, ACT, etc.
– whether to attend university outside  of Canada
– whether a “year off” is a good idea
– what about that Queen’s Personal  Statement of Experience

This  is enough to  make  anybody sick with anxiety.

This seminar has been organized by John Richardson (Author of –  Mastering The Personal  Statement) and presented by Rick Hayward who is a retired University of Toronto academic counselor. In a manner reminiscent of “Tuesdays with Morrie”, Rick will give you guidance,  answer your questions, and reduce your anxiety.

Hope to see you there  on January 30

P.S. Rick is the best academic counselor I have ever known. A common student comment after talking with Rick is:

“I feel so much better!”
