The College Admission Brief is a podcast for high school students going through the college admission experience. 

What it is: In each episode, we will provide timely tips, insider insight, and healthy perspective in a light, practical, and, most importantly, quick format. Our goal is to give general advice about visiting colleges, creating a balanced list, understanding the admission process, and understanding admission decisions— all with levity, encouragement, and personal stories.

What it’s not: All about Georgia Tech. It's also not boring, perfect, or preachy.

Where to find it: Subscribe and listen on iTunes, Spotify, and Spreaker.
