Listen to Episode 10 of Getting In:
Host Julie Lythcott-Haims and Josh Steckel hear graduation updates from three of our Getting In seniors: Alessandra LePera, Jordana Meyer, and Ellis Wells. The seniors share their favorite parts of the ceremonies and describe what it’s been like to participate in the podcast.
Plus, Julie and Josh answer a final round of listener questions. Listeners ask about: the value of high school leadership positions, when to consider transferring colleges, the misconceptions surrounding degrees and careers in the arts, and strategies for building a good relationship with your high school college counselor.
Getting In expert Josh Steckel is a college counselor at the Brooklyn School for Collaborative Studies and the co-author of Hold Fast to Dreams: A College Guidance Counselor, His Students, and the Vision of a Life Beyond Poverty.
