Getting into college is tough. “It’s a question of demographics,” said Dr. Whitney Laughlin of Rubin Education Services. More young people, 70-75 percent, are going to college and more are looking at a small number of top schools in the U.S., which is creating a bottleneck, she said.To add to the situation, the government is providing less financial aid. As a result, Laughlin is offering some assistance to college-bound students and their families by hosting a workshop from 7-8:30 p.m. Jan. 22 at Fuller Lodge. During her workshop, she will introduce participants to her approach for helping college-bound students and their families.“My goal is to do two things,” she said. “(For them) to go to schools that are good matches for them and schools they can afford.“It’s getting into the college of your choice and if finances are a factor, getting into a school you can afford,” Laughlin said.Her approach to accomplish these two objectives is very personalized to each client. However, the first thing she has all clients to do is fill out an interest and value survey and a questionnaire.
