How to Persuade Them Through Small Wins

By Jeremy Tiers, Director of Admissions Services    It’s important to take your time and lead prospective students through the process of understanding all the different reasons why they should want to choose your school over the other colleges on their list. That involves persuasion and patience…sometimes a lot of patience. Always remember though that the college search process for a student is exactly that, a process.
