College Signing Day is here! May 1st is the official "National Reply Date" for graduating seniors. We are so proud of the hard work our students have put in this year as they successfully navigated their college search and application processes. Kudos to the many parents and caregivers who supported these young adults, as well. Our Estrela Team is thankful to the families with whom we've worked for allowing us to be a part of this exciting journey!

Did you know in 2018 the @girlscouts introduced a new "College Knowledge" badge? 👩🏽🎓 The purpose of this new badge is to encourage girls to understand the steps of the college admission process and prepare them to begin this exciting journey. We were thrilled about this announcement and are even more excited to announce our recent partnership with the @girlscoutsoh helping their troops complete the steps to earn this badge! Our team members Laura and Amber (pictured here) conducted a successful workshop for girls and their families in Columbus, OH earlier this month ⭐️ If you are involved with a local Girl Scout troop anywhere in the U.S. or abroad, and are interested in learning more about how we can help your girls with their College Knowledge badge attainment, we'd love to hear from you! Our workshops can be done in person or remotely. Call or email us and learn more about how we can support your troop! 330-475-7054/info@EstrelaConsulting.com ⭐️⭐️ #girlscouts #girlscout #girlscoutsrock #collegeknowledge #collegeplanning #college

We’ve been hearing from families who have mentioned an “increase” in selectivity amongst colleges and I universities this year. We love the way our friend James Murphy spells it out in this corrected headline. #collegeadmissions #collegeacceptance #admissions #admission #acceptance #admitted
Shout out to @muhlenbergcollege for their great #AprilFools edition of their student newspaper! We think a #meme studies major would actually be pretty popular! 😂 #newspaper #collegenewspaper #muhlenberg #april1st #aprilfoolsday

THANK YOU to these US Senators for using their platform to step up this week and say what so many of us feel about the U.S. News and World Report Rankings: " As the primary mass media arbiter of college prestige relied upon by many students, families, and colleges, U.S. News has an obligation to assess American higher education fairly. U.S. News should acknowledge and correct for the role its rankings have played in fueling the collegiate arms race and preserving regressive admission policies like legacy enrollment and early decision. This approach prioritizes prestige and exacerbates America's deeply ingrained and racialized wealth disparities."
