[MOVED] Getting In: Your College Admissions Companion

For millions of American teenagers and their parents, adolescence is increasingly defined by one all-consuming goal: Getting into the right college. “Getting In” is a real-time podcast following a diverse group of New York-area high school seniors through the exhilarating and harrowing process of applying to college. The series is hosted by Julie Lythcott-Haims, the former Dean of Freshmen at Stanford University and author of “How to Raise an Adult.” The season will chronicle all the important steps along the way, from applications to (we hope) acceptances. The students will get advice from a stellar panel of experts, including former admissions officials from schools such as Princeton and UVA, and from experienced high school guidance counselors. The experts will also answer listeners’ questions. Nothing can remove the stress and uncertainty of the modern college application process, but “Getting In” aims to provide both teens and their parents with the kind of knowledgeable companionship that will at least make them feel they’re not alone.

Getting In senior Jonathan Diaz is a first-generation college applicant and he's grappling with some big questions. Should he leave his family? And wherever he gets in...will it be affordable? The support Jonathan is getting from his high school college office is critical and host Julie Lythcott-Haims gives us a closer look at Jonathan's progress this fall.

We meet Jonathan's mother, Candida, a home health attendant and we listen in on a pivotal meeting Jonathan has with his college counselor Josh Steckel as he begins to nail down his list of schools.

Josh Steckel, Jonathan's counselor at the Brooklyn School for Collaborative Studies, is also the author of Hold Fast to Dreams: A College Guidance Counselor, His Students, and the Vision of a Life Beyond Poverty.
