Lew Schneider updates us on his son's college journey. Lew's son Leo has many strategies for applying for college. There's early decision for students who are dead-set on a school – this way, a student commits early to their school of choice. Another option for prospective undergraduates is early action. This is for students who are ready to apply, but don't want to commit. Lew will explain the parental headache that is college admissions.
