Over the years that I've worked with high schoolers and their families guiding them through the college admissions process, I've always tried to extend my help to those who have needed it most. Looking back, I think that pro bono work can be many times the most rewarding. That thought leads me to an exciting new program being launched by the University of Pennsylvania (“Penn").
According to a recent news release, starting in February, the admissions office at Penn, in conjunction with Steppingstone Scholars, will launch a free online learning initiative aimed at increasing access to college. The massive open online course, “How to Apply to College," will be offered via the Coursera platform.
