HARTFORD--Laura Boyer, who runs an eponymous consulting firm aimed at advising high school students during the college application process, joined us this morning to discuss the stress of getting into the school of your choice.

Boyer has a lot of experience: she was an admissions officer at New York University, has worked as a college counselor in schools in Connecticut and Maryland, and has a master's in clinical social work.

Boyer discusses how parents should approach their children during this stressful time, and provides tips on how to keep kids on track and calm. She also says parents should keep in mind that the process is significantly different than it was decades ago, and the process may not be what they expect.
